Doorstep collections update

Update on the doorstep collections item - they didn't QUITE remove all the charity references. The smaller print on the bag still says: "The more clothing you give the more the charity will benefit".

The Advertising Standards Authority has recently (July 11th) told Helping Arms to remove this wording from their bags - details here.

Helping Arms' lawyers told the ASA that the company was applying to become a charity. The ASA has also been told that they have given a donation of £200 to University College London Hospitals. That doesn't sound like much for a fairly large operation to give, but we leave it to your own judgement.
