Letter - Charity bag collections

I READ with great interest your story in your paper, dated March 30, regarding the bags put out for the NSPCC and Age UK being stolen.

Last year I put a bag our for the Fire Fighters Charity before 8am.

At 6pm I realised no one was going to collect the bag.

Yesterday, April 5, I once again put out a bag for the same charity before 8am and once again at 6pm I brought it back in.

I can’t understand why they go to the expense of paying someone to deliver these bags and then no one comes to collect them.

The bags were in full view so no excuse.

I shall keep the contents of the bag for another charity as I am sure I will not have to wait long before I am asked to fill another one.
