New contactless donation points help the homeless in Bristol

New contactless donation points to fund the city’s night shelters for people sleeping rough have been launched in Broadmead; marking a new approach to supporting homeless people in Bristol.

The Broadmead BID has donated the use of two display units located outside Tesco Metro in Broadmead and near Primark at the junction of Union Street and The Horsefair to Bristol’s Safer Off The Streets campaign. Innovative contactless donation points have been installed in the units providing a quick and convenient way for shoppers and Bristol Shopping Quarter staff to make a £2 donation using a contactless card or Apple Pay. The money will help St Mungos, Julian Trust, Crisis Centre Ministries and Caring in Bristol to fund the city’s night shelters for rough sleepers. Click HERE for further information.
