Contactless giving points being placed across some of London’s most famous parks.

The move has been made by The Royal Parks charity, to raise awareness of the need for donations to maintain the public spaces it maintains, including Hyde Park and Regent’s Park.

The contactless points are being placed across all eight of the charity’s parks through an initiative through tech for good company GoodBox.

““We are delighted we could partner with GoodBox and use their contactless devices throughout the parks to help raise awareness and support from the UK general public,” said Royal Parks director of communications and engagement Ali Jeremy.

“The devices are already starting to increase donations and we hope this will continue as COVID measures ease.”

GoodBox co-founder and managing director Francesca Hodgson added: “The team at GoodBox are so pleased we could help the iconic Royal parks in London with our contactless technology.

“2021 was another tough year for charitable donations, but I am sure the generosity of the UK public will help the charity to raise much needed funds.”
