Whether you like chuggers or not, these charities save people’s lives and improve the lives of millions of people in this country and all over the world.

They are hardly alone on our streets with free newspaper and magazine people, people selling paintball deals, gym memberships etc etc. At least, they’re raising money for good causes.

Surely, we are grown up enough to put up with a little inconvenience so that these charities can do their work?

Or is the peace and tranquility of our precious lives that much more important than feeding, clothing or housing people or helping those with disabilities lead a better life or finding a cure for a disease or helping the aged population live with dignity or preventing cruelty or abuse to children or animals?
