Police in Warrenpoint are keen to identify possible victims of a bogus charity collection. On Tuesday afternoon, 16th September, police received a report of two males calling to doors in the Thomas Street area with a sponsor sheet for the Southern Area Hospice sponsored walk which was due to take place on 20th September. Speaking to Newry Times, Constable Gillian Murphy, Kilkeel Response, explained, “We attended the area and spoke to two males. One of the males, who was 17 years old, had a sponsor sheet with names on it and donations. “We conducted enquiries with the Southern Hospice who confirmed that the youth had not registered to take part in the walk. We recovered a small sum of money and are now keen to locate anyone who may have offered sponsorship. He added, “If you believe you may have sponsored this young man, please contact us in Kilkeel on the 101 number.”
