TEMPLE STREET UNIVERSITY Children’s Hospital in Dublin has said that it is introducing cashless donations in the run-up to Christmas this year. 

The hospital is currently developing CollecTin with VISA and cashless service Sum-up, which allows for contactless payment versions of traditional bucket collection. 

Last year, the Simon Community made a similar move and began accepting Apple Pay and Android Pay on mobile phones. 

So, today we’re asking: Would you be more likely to donate to a charity if contactless payments were an option?
