Fundraising statement

The charity sector has, understandably, come under fire in recent months for the aggressive fundraising activities adopted by larger charities. These tactics have included employing ‘chuggers’ – charity street muggers who accost potential donors on the high street – as well as direct mailing and cold calling.

Rest assured this is not something the HSF has been doing or will do in the future, nor will we ever sell our mailing lists to outsourced fundraising companies, or anyone else for that matter. 

Thanks to our fundraisers, subscribing members, regular donors and supporters, we are able to sustain our charity which makes it possible for us to work hard to win grants and corporate support. Without you, we wouldn’t exist and we do appreciate all the support you are able to give, even if it’s just £2 a month.
