BBC Children in Need has partnered with iZettle as it looks to notch up a record number of contactless donations during its appeal week.
From today fundraisers, equipped with iZettle readers, will be carrying out contactless collections at some of London’s busiest stations. Pudsey Bear will also be making a number of appearances, allowing the public to high five him (with their debit or credit cards) to donate a fiver.
Claire Hoyle, Commercial Director at BBC Children in Need, says: “Charities can no longer rely on cash donations as people just aren’t carrying as much loose change any more.”
“We hope with the help of iZettle, we’ll be able to maximise the donations we receive for this year’s appeal to fund even more projects for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK who really do need our help.”
