Christmas will soon be upon us and now is the time for the bogus charity organisations to exploit the kindness of the public warn Chiswick Police.

"Please be aware when donating or buying on behalf of children, especially on your door step, that some of these so-called charities are mainly lining the pockets of the representatives.

"It is very hard to turn your backs on the needy, especially where children are concerned.

"Please ensure you are absolutely satisfied that your money is going to a well deserved cause."
