Britain's biggest charities are to hold crisis talks over the future of 'chugging' - and whether it should be scrapped altogether.
The summit meeting has been convened in the wake of an investigation by The Sunday Telegraph into the practices of one of Britains biggest street fundraising companies.
The findings have prompted the Institute of Fundraising (IoF) to host a summit on the future of face-to-face fundraising.
About 30 fundraising directors, from Britains biggest charities, will attend.
