Over the last twenty four hours the media have carried several stories about ‘chuggers’. These are the people who approach you in the street on behalf of a charity and ask you to sign up to a standing order to make regular payments to their particular charity.
The media has revealed that some well known high street charities are paying up to £136 for every new donor the ‘chuggers’ sign up, yet over 40% of standing orders are cancelled after one payment.
ARC-Addington Fund does not use any such fund-raising tactics. Furthermore, please be assured that every penny of every donation we receive will reach the families for whom it is intended.
We do not use any donation to cover any running costs whatsoever.
