Apply to run a charitable collection
Notify us of the result of a charitable collection
Please contact your Local Authority in the first instance.
We would always advise that in the event of a complaint the
first contact is made with the trader by you - preferably in the
form a letter (with proof of delivery). If that has not worked, if
you are located in the UK, Consumer Direct will give
you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.
E.g. about noise, pollution, etc. Also should one licence holder
complain about another.
