Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity has been made aware that a man has been knocking on the doors of Bristol residents purporting to be collecting money for Rainbow Trust.
The man has called at homes in the East and North West areas of the city between Saturday 21 October and Saturday 3 November with a Rainbow Trust collection bucket.
Emma Haines, Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Rainbow Trust, said: “Rainbow Trust fundraisers are not currently undertaking door-to door fundraising in the Bristol area and we would encourage residents not to give money if they are approached in this way at the moment.
“When Rainbow Trust fundraisers do approach individuals directly, they should have a Rainbow Trust identification pass or a headed Rainbow Trust letter.
“We are advising any concerned residents to contact Rainbow Trust and / or Avon & Somerset Police, who are aware of the incidents. The majority of our bucket collections take place at fundraising events and other agreed locations, such as supermarkets and shopping centres.”
If anyone has any concerns, please call Rainbow Trust on 01372 220083 and report their concerns to Avon & Somerset Police by calling 101.
