House-to-house charitable collections, now more than ever, are an important source of income for local and national charities.
Charities or commercial companies collecting on behalf of charities are required to obtain a licence from us before they can run a house-to-house collection. This helps to ensure that collections are not carried out under false pretences or under fraudulent circumstances.
Unauthorised charity collecting this week (w/c 29 April 2019)
The council has been notified that Samuel's Charity bags are being delivered to properties in Richmondshire this week. Please DO NOT put any items in their charity bags as they are not authorised by the council to collect charitable donations at this time. A list of those charities that are legally allowed to collect items this month are shown in the section below.
