We play an important role in helping our customers give to good causes.
- With our Reward Accounts, customers can donate their Rewards to ten different charities: Alzheimer’s Society, Barnardo’s, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research UK, Macmillan, NSPCC, The Prince’s Trust, RNIB, Disaster & Emergency Committee and Sport Relief. In 2017, we facilitated donations of £239,158 through the Reward Account
- We are a founding partner of #Giving Tuesday, an international social media campaign which runs the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. For #GivingTuesday 2017, we invited our Reward customers to donate their MyRewards to charity, which helped drive an uplift in customer donations during November and December
- We remained the only bank to offer ATM giving to anyone with a LINK ATM card. ATM giving across the UK & Ireland exceeded £1.4 million since the scheme’s launch in 2012. A total of 26 charities benefit from this scheme, including RNIB, Oxfam, RSPCA and Cancer Research UK. In 2017, £173k and €9k was donated through the scheme.
