  11. I wonder if anyone could answer a query about tips. My brother in law is working this weekend at a famous racecourse parking cars for the attendees of the racing. He is working as a temp for an agency. He was told he would get an hourly rate plus he could receive tips. Whilst working the supervisors (not from the employment agency) have told him any cash tips must be handed in and will be given to a charity. He wants to be honest and has sometimes been given tips of £20 in cash but has to hand in. Is this legal? It is virtually minimum wage and the tips (which r

  13. Hi, There is this Homeless Charity services (they give used clothes, toys for homeless people ) that we have been using for years because we are homeless, but because we were moved out 2 years ago from our own borough, the staff of that charity ( because of personal reasons) decided that we do not meet the criteria ( we must live in the borough ) and they want to stop us from using their services and are asking us not to come any more. Note that there is another person who was asked the same thing, but she lives in the borough...I don't know the reasons behind this, but this can be purely be

  15. A special register allowing people to prevent charities from pestering them for donations will be created following the death of a Bristol poppy seller. 92-year-old Olive Cooke killed herself in the Avon Gorge last May after battling depression. Shortly after her death it was revealed she had been bombarded with thousands of messages from charities she supported. The Fundraising Regulator (FPS) hopes to launch the service this year, subject to approval from members. HOW WILL IT WORK? Users create an account and choose which charities they want to blo
  16. i have been dealing with housing options as well. this is about my landlord misleading me from the start with fraudulent tenancies. ie 1 making me pay a bond and months total £600 for my own tenancy in a two tenancy house 2 making me sign and witness the other tenants tenancy and £600 when, in actual fact, he had not paid a bond or months rent at all. i was told this three months later by the landlord in a recorded meeting 3 the landlord did not protect my bond and as a result of this, I am in a horrendous position 4 the landlord returned my bond 2 months after i paid it and then c
  17. If people give to charity via a giving site, for example, just giving, can they gift aid with there donation, or is that only by the registered person..
  18. Always happy to look around the charity shops.And spend a pound or two or even three. And donated as well. But increasingly finding it difficult to find not a bargain but a fair priced item. As the Great British public donate things free i would have thought the policy would be stack it high sell it cheap. Charity shops are now everywhere on the high streets of Britain and would have thought competition was fierce. Shoes,clothes household items at prices that you can now buy at certain stores cheaper.New. Charity shops are places where the poorer can go to find things cheaper
  19. I am a member of a local group here in Dorset, Pets Lost and Found. It is purely voluntary and now has 4032 members. They will post up quickly about stolen pets, lost pets, found pets, and organise searches for cats, dogs, birds that go missing. They go out and scan deceased animals, or take wildlife off to a vet etc. .They are very successful and have helped many people get back with lost pets, although there have been a few sad endings, of course. Its not a registered charity, but they did ask for donations for a petrol fund a while ago, which is very reasonable considering what t

  21. Hello, I haven't caught up with this forum for a while, so please forgive me if this question has been already answered. I'm a male in my late 40s, long term unemployed but not yet claiming (long story why I didn't claim). I'm not yet technically homeless but will be in a short time if I don't find a source of income or claim JSA. At the moment I'm living in a sort of b&b/backpackers hostel in Birmingham (not a homeless hostel) and the owner doesn't really like the unemployed. If I should receive a brown envelope, he would probably kick me out (it has happened before to prev
  22. I've been asked to become treasurer of a small local group of a UK Charity charity however it's been years since the treasurer has changed (the usual story been trying to give it up just as long as they've been treasurer) and so I'm online looking for the mandate forms to change things over but I've never done anything like this before and so I'm a bit stumped first question what is the difference between a Signatory and Non-Signatory? and secondly will I be credit checked and potentially refused due to recent late payments and non payments regarding two small debts (
