Macmillan Cancer Support has been notified that local people are receiving flyers through their doors asking for donations of clothes, bedding, mobile phones and jewellery which will be sold to raise money for Macmillan.

Macmillan would like to make it clear the charity is not connected with this flyer, which has been produced without its knowledge or permission. The charity would ask that people do not make any donation as a result of this flyer as it is highly unlikely the charity will benefit in any way. The police have been notified.

Macmillan Head of Fundraising Caroline Savage said: “Macmillan is not asking for donations of clothes and household goods at present. If anyone would like to find out how they can support or work with people affected by cancer and be sure all their donation comes to the charity, could I suggest they visit our website (www.macmillan.org.uk) or ring 01925 846740.”
