    I am a post-grad journalism student, doing a feature on charity workers. I am looking for a street fundraiser to interview briefly over the phone this week about their job. This will NOT be published, but if anyone could take 20 minutes to chat to me I’d be much obliged. Please email me at bensillis at gmail dot com.

    Ben, you’re not that likely to fund street fundraisers hanging around in here (or maybe I;m mistaken in that). Tends to be the people who send tehm forth in here. But why not walk up to a few in the street and ask them if they’ll help you? They’ll probably be OK with it.

    There are some face to face/street fundraisers on UK Fundraising (one of them started the Streetwise blog here a year or two back), but Brian’s right that the site is more likely to attract their employers and the charities that engage them.

    That said, try talking to the face to face agencies e.g.

    http://www.futurefundraising.co.uk

    http://www.face2facefundraising.co.uk

    and certainly talk to the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association at

    http://www.pfra.org.uk

    who can give you some background and also put you in touch with some of their members.
