Ban the town’s charity bandits
12:44pm Thursday 24th May 2012 in Letters
I AM pleased to hear Glasgow is cracking down on charity bandits and think it’s about time Warrington Borough Council did the same.
I’m put off shopping in town by the direct-debit-hunting-charity-mercenaries. I’m forced to run up Bridge Street to the safety of the mall.
Never make eye contact with them as then they’ve got you.
I’m thinking about starting an anti-chugger Facebook group called ‘beware the dangers of charity muggers’.
Our town centre is in the grip of these pests and it gives charities a bad name. I’m not against giving money to charity.
No one likes a good cause more than me but there has to be better ways than offending people.
