Re: Bootoutbreastcancer

Many thanks Bernard, I will investigate further.

 

It does seem odd, they are posting envelopes for donations way south of the areas they are supporting and fund raising to provide hospital equipment for.

 

I will likely just donate to our local hospital and breast care services.

Re: Bootoutbreastcancer

Thanks for you input silvertongue.  Its very helpful.

 

I think I would rather support my local hospital and breast care unit.  The fund raising seems to be for hospital equipment in the north and midlands, where as I am South of the Country.

Re: Bootoutbreastcancer

I think the charity itself is genuine but there seems to be some doubt about the people who do the bag collections and how much actually goes to the charities they purport to support.

Hi Astra

It looks like a genuine organisation.

I found their Twitter account here: https://twitter.com/BootOutBC

 

There is a Contact Us page you where can get in touch with them if you'd like to change how they are in touch with you.

 

Sending our best wishes
Bernard

Another envelope through the door today.

 

Has no one else got any information about this please?

Bootoutbreastcancer

I'm not sure if this is the right place.

 

Can any one advise if bootoutbreastcancer.org.uk is a genuine registered charity and if they really are raising funds for NHS equipment?

 

I had a plastic bag through post box this morning to fill  for recycle clothes.  So I checked out the website but still uncertain (even though they show a registered charity on their page)  it looks like they are looking to raise funds for NHS regions up country only.  I live in the southern regions.

they are collecting in partnership with yourdonation.uk/bootout
