Bogus charity collector operating in Sheffield

Have your say

A bogus charity collector has been calling at homes on a Sheffield estate, residents have been warned.

National charity Mind said a bogus collector has been calling at homes in the Parson Cross area.

Margaret Lewis, of the charity's Sheffield branch, said: "Could you please alert your readers to the fact that Mind do not collect door-to-door.

"In addition, we have spoken to Sheffield City Council's licensing service and nobody has applied to collect door-to-door in that area for any charity, so this person is doing so without authorisation."

To support Mind visit or call call 0114 258 4489.

Anyone with information about the bogus collector should call South Yorkshire Police on 101.
