Network Rail and TAP London, a non-profit organisation which support a coalition of homeless charities, have installed the railway’s first contactless donation point in London Bridge station to help tackle the rise of homelessness in London. According to research, London accounts for a quarter of the UK’s homeless population and around 170,000 people are officially homeless which equates to one in ever 53 Londoners. When cards are tapped, £3 are automatically donated to 22 different homelessness charities. There are already 91 contactless donation points in London but London Bridge which is the UK’s fourth busiest station is the first station to get a contactless point. There are plans for more contactless points to be installed at stations in the future.
