Police have been made aware of a number of school children campaigning for donations in the Bribie Island area.
While police have confirmed that local schools are in fact holding fundraising events and programs at the moment, we would like to take this opportunity to remind community members of what to do should you witness what you think may be suspicious activity.
If you are approached by anyone claiming to be fundraising, police encourage residents to ask to see sponsorship booklets that they should be carrying to record donations in.
If they are unable to produce the booklet, then residents should consider not donating.
If you believe that you may have given money to children or anyone else misrepresenting themselves, you are encouraged to contact the police and report it.
