Van-ishing Donations

Readers may remember the women who were caught stealing donations from outside a charity shop recently. Well a blog reader contacted me today with a story of an industrial scale version.

He said:
"As I was walking past a charity shop last night [just before midnight], next to WHS, I noticed a rather large van, and a man collecting the donations left outside the shop.
As I approached the man, I asked if he was allowed to do this, and he was adamant that he was working for local charities. Having spoken to the store, they have no idea about this guy or company, and stated no one collects the donations.
The name on the van was 'Rainbow Homeless Centre', and having searched online, found no reference to them. The registration was AJ05 CFE.
I advised the local police and they say they will keep a lookout for this."
I would suggest if anyone knows anything about this or sees this van please contact the police. (101 or anonymously: 0800 555 111)
