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.
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.
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.
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
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
