Ulster Bank customers can donate to Haiti at bank's ATMs

It’s feared the death toll for Hurricane Matthew could exceed 1,000 people.

ULSTER BANK CUSTOMERS can now donate to the Hurricane Matthew Haiti appeal at the bank’s ATMS.

The humanitarian initiative to support Concern’s work also allows customers to donate  on the mobile banking app or on the Anytime Banking website.

Even people who aren’t Ulster Bank customers can donate over the counter in branches throughout the Republic of Ireland.

It’s feared the death toll for Hurricane Matthew could exceed 1,000 people. Official figures show 2.1 million people are affected, of which 1.4 million require urgent immediate aid and assistance.

When using the bank’s ATMs customers can click the “account services” option and then the “donate to charity” option, where they will find Concern.

Ulster Bank Anytime Banking customers can donate online or on the bank’s mobile banking app by adding Concern Worldwide as an approved payee under “payments and transfers”.

Managing Director of Ulster Bank Retail Banking, Chris Wilson, said “Irish people have a long history of supporting charities and emergency appeals so we’re determined to help in any way we can.”

Staff at Ulster Bank have donated €3,000 to Concern from their staff charity fund to help those worst affected by the disaster.
