Halifax should copy Burnley

I see Burnley Council has severely restricted the activities of “charity muggers” and I hope Halifax follows suit.

I enjoy coming to Halifax but the number of these people is the big drawback.I find their trained displays of “mateyness” obnoxious as they all speak the same and it is obviously false.

It is no secret they are on a hefty percentage of the money they attract.I have often seen young girls being targeted, not just for a donation, but to sign a direct debit, pretty certainly for money they can ill afford.

These people are not a part of the charitable impulse, they are an abuse of it.
