WH Smith opens doors to charity collectors.
The books and stationery chain has confirmed that a trial is under way with the Red Cross in its Holborn Circus store in London in a move likely to raise eyebrows in the retail sector.
Charity collectors have become a regular feature on Britain's high street, but are unpopular with some shoppers.
WH Smith said: " As a company, we have nominated charities that we support throughout the year. s
In addition, we support appeals that run for a set period of time, such as the Poppy Appeal and Children in Need." "As with any trial we run, we will evaluate customer response as soon as it is complete."
