What to do about the begging letters?
I’m sure I should know this but is there some organisation I can contact to stop the flood of charity appeals that arrive at mum’s house in every post? She was always a supporter of a couple of charities and I wonder if they’ve sold her data to others? Thing is, some of the letters, especially the ones from animal and children’s charities, really upset her, as I suppose they’re meant to. I look in her cheque book and see she’s written half a dozen cheques for £2 to all these charities, which of course just brings in more post. I’ve tried calling some of them and asking them to take her off their list but it doesn’t seem to make much difference, and there are too many for me to phone them all. But as they’ve got her details from somewhere, and she’s sent cheques to a lot of them, I’m thinking it may not count as junkmail. Anyway, any thoughts welcome!
