This is true – and not a wind-up

Mrs Filbo volunteered to help with a bucket collection at a dance display in town at the weekend, for a well-known cancer charity.
"Oh good!" she said when given a bucket. "I'll enjoy shaking this, and going around the crowd to raise a few quid."
"I'm afraid you can't do that," came the reply.

Apparently, it is now deemed 'intimidating' to shake a collecting bucket.
It is also deemed to be unfair to approach people, as they can feel uncomfortable if they don't have any spare money to donate.
One has to just stand there passively, holding it quietly in front of you.
What sort of caaant comes up with this sort of shiit? The problem is that a few people will conform, and it will gradually become normal behaviour.

I despair.

Too right, raising money for a good cause how dare you, sit down & do nothing & stop being so thoughtful.

To be fair, I don't want people to approach me shaking a bucket.

That has been.in force for years unfortunately. You can't pressure people into parting with their money. [V]

I normally find threatening with "no thanks" normally halts them in their tracks.

i felt for the two old dears collecting on raw dykes yesterday, asking for spare change, given the stadium is now cashless.

in fact anyone collecting must have seen a downturn given less and less people carry lose change.

pen_3 – even if you've stopped to watch something that's going on in front of the charity's name?

It seems fine for people to stop you with a clipboard and try to persuade you to tell them your bank details...

I don't want anyone approaching me asking for money and no, it's not ok to approach me with a clipboard either. If there is a charity that I would like to give you don't have to shake a bucket in my face, I'll make a beeline for you.

There is no rule about shaking charity collection buckets, from looking extensively online.

Unless someone can find a real official example of such a rule?

I think Code of Fundraising Practice 8.1 covers it.

When I was at school in Harborough around 30 years ago we did a collection in the town for a charity and some old geezer came up to me and had a right go at me for shaking my collecting tin citing back then it was illegal.

Just get on with it is what I say.

6th-
I didn't say there was a law against it – it's the creeping paralysis of normality that I despair at.

It's not illegal.
I was given a bucket once to collect for Keith Weller on a matchday. I took it back to where the Supporters Club told me and a steward took it and walked off.
I was a bit concerned and checked the law. The bucket was supposed to be sealed.
I reckon there was £100 to £150 in it.

I remember there used to be this right menace who loitered around BHS and town hall square. Don’t know what was wrong with him but whatever it was, that was the charity he collected for.

Anyway, he was forever getting warnings for his aggressive shaking of the bucket and ramblings and was regularly ejected from the area

Hey Mac

Where in the Code of Fundraising Practice 8.1, does it say anything about shaking a collection bucket?
