Feeling Funny, Being Human is at Brunel University’s Antonin Artaud Theatre, on the campus off Kingston Lane, Uxbridge, on Friday, November 21, 4pm to 7pm. WE ARE urging you to support Penny for London and register for the scheme.
Unveiled by Boris Johnson, this is a revolution in charitable giving which is set to transform the life chances of young Londoners from disadvantaged backgrounds all over the capital.
The new scheme, devised by the Mayor’s Fund for London, marks a step change in how we donate to charity, harnessing the huge potential of contactless payments that now total into the millions.
By registering your contactless debit or credit card, you can donate one penny, or more if you wish, every day you travel on London Underground, bus, tram, DLR, London Overground, and National Rail services that accept Oyster.
Contactless cardholders can opt in via the Penny for London mobile site or website – www. pennyforlondon.com.
Transport for London, which operates Europe’s largest single payments system, counted more than five million contactless journeys in the first month that the facility was available on all London transport.
Every penny donated by the public will be used to benefit young Londoners via the Mayor’s Fund for London charities and other not-for-profit concerns.
