I receive a door-to-door charity donation bag almost every week. How many people realise that almost none of these actually come from the advertised charity. They are circulated by companies that collect clothing etc for sale, often abroad, and give a small donation to the charity.
The bag I received today says that it donates £105 per tonne to the air ambulance.
Working on a very rough average of 500g weight per article of donated clothing, that means that the charity would get a magnificent donation of approximately 5p per item!
If these items were donated to local charity shops they would be sold for realistic prices, all of which would go to the charity.
It’s a scam!
