I’ve got bad news for you all. These scum bags are part of an international gang who use the leaflets as an excuse to be on the streets and steal from legitimate charities.
In Wales, England and Scotland I’ve been working for children’s hospitals (Great Ormond Street, Alder Hey, Sheffield and Birmingham Children’s Hosptials) to try and stop the thefts. These hospitals and charities are losing over 2 million GBP a year to these theives – yes that’s over 3 million Euros.
It’s despicable that they can steal from most sick and seriously ill children.
We are about to update our website with details but urge the public to carry on giving doorstep donations to REGISTERED and LEGITIMATE charities only.
If you notice anything suspicious call the police immediately and give the registration number of the theives vehicle.
