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."
