Irish Wheelchair Association warns of bogus collectors in Drogheda

Front Page

The Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) is urging the public to be vigilant after receiving reports of bogus collectors operating in various areas including Drogheda.

These individuals, who have been spotted with clipboards and selling lines, are not affiliated with IWA and are not legitimate collectors.

IWA reminds the public that legitimate collectors will always have a letter of authorisation from IWA, a Garda permit, or a letter of permission from the supermarket where they are stationed.

Additionally, all IWA collectors will be wearing a branded high-vis jacket and will have an IWA-branded bucket for donations.

If in doubt, individuals are encouraged to ask for proof of identification from collectors. Any concerns or suspicions should be reported to the local Garda station for further investigation.

To report any suspicious activity, please contact your local Garda station. For more information about IWA and their fundraising activities, visit www.iwa.ie . Donations can also be made securely online at www.iwa.ie/doante
