TAP London, a contactless donation facility, has raised over £130,000 as the year ends.
TAP was founded in 2017 and allows people to donate £3 via contactless.
There are 90 donation points around London.
TAP donations are divided among 29 homeless charities.
What does this mean?
With growing levels of homelessness in the city and less people carrying cash, TAP was developed to make it easier for people to give – and it appears to have proved popular. Donors find TAP attractive not only thanks to its convenience, but due to its security and link to registered charities.
