On Street Activity

Face to Face Fund Raising

Paid street fundraisers stand in busy areas and approach passers-by to persuade them to donate money to the charitable cause he/she is promoting. They will briefly explain the work of the charity and try to engage the person in a dialogue about the issues the charity focuses on. The fundraiser will then move the conversation towards asking for a financial contribution (via Direct debit), usually a regular monthly pledge.

All fundraisers adhere to a code of conduct which you can download here.
