Charity in New Rents hopes to tackle bogus collections
A charity shop in Ashford has
launched a new free pick up service for donations to combat bogus
drivers taking bags from outside people’s homes.
Stock at the The British
Heart Foundation charity shop, in New Rents, is running low after
donation bags that were due to be collected from outside customer’s
homes were taken by fraudulent drivers.
Now Tina Shorter, the
store’s manager (pictured left), is urging customers wishing to
donate to call ahead first so that driver Ron Pickering can make an
appointment to pick the donations up, rather than leaving them
outside people’s homes.
To use the BHF free
collection service, call 0844 334 1400 or click here.
