Rogue 'Charity Collectors'

Morning all!

Apologies for not getting a post up any sooner, its been mayhem since Rugger's return home just before Christmas! Jayne assures me that she will be getting an update post up and some photos during the course of this week.

I had a flurry of emails and telephone calls to my office yesterday from Haringey residents who have been duped by two girls supposedly collecing on behalf of Charlotte's Trust.

The girls in question are: one white with brown hair pulled up, estimated age 16 and the other black, wearing trainers and about 20 years old. Their 'technique' is to knock on peoples doors handing out flyers about Charlotte and then ask for donations with a 'story' that myself and Jayne will be dispatching T-Shirts to people who donate, hence the need to collect a home address from people who donate!

The three complaints I have have are North London based: Crouch End, Wood Green & Tottenham.

Collecting on the street for a Trust Fund IS illegal and we have never endorsed this behaviour on behalf of the Trust.

Could I please ask that whoever is insensitive, cold hearted and stupid enough to do this ,that they stop effective immediate! I and Jayne are now having to waste time today making statements to the Police when really we have much better things to do i.e looking after Charlotte!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
