Dr Kershaw’s Hospice have issued a warning after bogus cold callers posing as representatives of the charity and asking people for donations were reported over the weekend.

A spokesperson from the Hospice said: “We are concerned about the welfare of our more vulnerable and elderly supporters.

“We were alerted over the weekend of bogus cold callers asking for financial donations for Dr Kershaw’s Hospice.

“We can assure you that this is not our practice to cold call for cash donations.

“The only people that would call is our Hospice Lottery Canvassers. They would have Photo ID and would never ask for cash donations.”
