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, The Disasters Emergency Committee and Sport Relief. In 2019, we facilitated donations of £266,590 through the Reward Account.
- We are a founding partner of #Giving Tuesday UK, which is part of an international social media campaign which runs the Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It aims to encourage individuals, businesses and charities to promote charitable giving on this one day. For #GivingTuesday 2019, we donated £250,000 to the good causes which our employees and customers support, and encouraged them to join this global day of giving.
- We remained the only bank to offer ATM giving to anyone with a LINK ATM card. A total of 26 charities benefit from this scheme, including RNIB, Oxfam, RSPCA and Cancer Research UK. In 2019, £118,606 was donated through the scheme.
