Not what it seems

I live in Brimington and work at the local infant school. I was surprised, therefore, when a ‘charity’ collection bag came through my letterbox saying: “Collecting to support our local schools”.

I knew nothing about this. I visited the website and searched in vain for a charity number, company or email address. The company is a commercial venture which may like to assist schools in the future.

Please could you publish this letter as a warning that filling these bags will not help local schools.
