Ulster Bank Opens ATM Network to Charitable Giving Scheme

Ulster Bank has become the first bank in Ireland to enable its customers donate to charities at any of its ATMs in the island of Ireland.

Customers will be able to donate between €1 and €250 to one of eight specified charities.

Pauline McKiernan, Community Affairs Manager, Ulster Bank Group says the ATM Giving Scheme will make it easy for customers to make a charitable donation to a choice of eight of the most popular charities in the Republic of Ireland.

The charities are: Rehab; Barnardos; Irish Cancer Society; Concern Worldwide; Irish Heart Foundation; Irish Hospice Foundation; Society of Saint Vincent de Paul and the Simon Communities of Ireland

There will be no service charges or transaction fees.

"We welcome any innovations that will help charities fundraise more easily and effectively", Deirdre Garvey, Chief Executive of The Wheel commented. “We are delighted to see this development which gives the public a new and easy way to donate to their favourite causes."
