THE ACTIVITIES OF ’chuggers’ – charity street fundraisers – have been targeted by new legislation in the UK.
The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association has updated its list of rules to include a ‘points system’ for making sure these fundraisers adhere to strict guidelines on how they conduct themselves on the street. As this video from the BBC shows, the tactics of some of the ‘chuggers’ in approaching members of the public seems to be a bone of contention.
There are no plans to restrict the activities of charity street fundraisers here.
How do you feel about these fundraisers? Do they bother you?
