Bottesford NHW Alert - Anthony Nolan Trust Door to Door Fund-Raising

We have received a report that 2 young black youths were calling at properties in Riverside Way yesterday, asking  people to sign up to give money to the above trust.  They were wearing t shirts with Anthony Nolan on it, but there is no report of ID badges or a permit.
We have tried to contact the trust, so far without success, and we are currently awaiting advice from Melton Council on whether a permit has been issued for this fund-raising. We will circulate more information as soon as we receive it.
In the meantime please treat any callers claiming to be fund-raising for this cause with extreme caution. If they do call on you and you decide to answer the door it would be extremely helpful if you could check if they have IDs and a permit, and let us at NHW know.
As you will all know by now NHW does not encourage residents to give to charities at the door. There are serious risks to doing this especially if the callers are collecting personal information from you such as bank details. If you wish to donate to any charity it is much safer to do so directly.
