Fake Charity Collections

Police have received a number of complaints of person collection for charities in and around local pubs.

They have been in fancy dress and asking for donations for well known charities.
When they have been challenged to show identification they have then run away.

Police recommend you ask to see the collectors identification before giving a donation to make sure your money is going to a worthwhile cause.

Police have the registration of a vehicle seen leaving with the fake charity workers and will be speak to the registered owner.

Many thanks
