A WGC-BASED charity is warning residents to be on their guard following reports of bogus can collectors going door to door.
Lisa Seccombe, director of fundraising at Isabel Hospice, said: "Although many of you may have seen our volunteers out in the street, outside supermarkets and at local events we never collect from the public by knocking on doors, apart from our long standing house-to-house collection in the Hadhams during June."
She added: "June is a very important collecting time for Isabel Hospice as it is Sunflower month.
"You will see many of our supporters collecting with the sunflower pin badges but they will always be in public places, never collecting door to door.

"If you are approached at home by someone saying they are collecting for Isabel Hospice, call the police.
