Door to Door Clothing Collectors
In Malpas we get lots of "Charity" bags posted through our letter boxes.
E.g. in the past two weeks we have had two bages from "Breast Cancer Research Aid"
The issue is, how do we know they are all genuine Charities?
Well Cheshire West Council (CWaC) Regulatory Services Manager has advised that for house to house collections, the charity either needs to be on the attached exemption list or needed to have applied for a house to house collection permit from CWaC .
There is no charge for the permit.
Those with permits can be checked on the public register on our website (search under house to house collections) or by clicking the link here:
Breast Cancer Research Aid is not on the register so Regulatory Services are now looking into what enforcement can do about it.
