Shrewsbury BID has been working with Shropshire Council to regulate the number of charity data collection representatives, sometimes known as ‘chuggers’, in the centre of town. This is following feedback from businesses and their customers that the number of these representatives has grown considerably and is having a detrimental effect on people’s experience in Shrewsbury. A new agreement with the Public Fundraisers Association (PFRA) will limit the days, times, locations and numbers of these representatives each week.

For more information on this agreement, please contact Aleks Vladimirov, Partnership Development Manager by email to
