TAP for Bristol marks its second birthday this week.
Reading time: one minute
The contactless donation scheme is a partnership between Caring in Bristol, Bristol City Centre BID, and Redcliffe & Temple BID created to give generous Bristolians a secure, novel, way of giving money to help solve homelessness in our city.
TAP for Bristol is unique in that it raises money for both homelessness prevention and emergency support. 100% of each contactless ‘tap’ going directly to supporting those who need it.
The project in numbers
To date, the people of Bristol have raised over £46,000 from more than 15,000 individual taps, and there are now 18 TAP Points across Bristol.
All money raised is divided equally between our homelessness prevention partnership and small grants to other organisations working with those experiencing homelessness, such as Second Step and St Mungo’s.
“That TAP for Bristol has been so impactful over two short years is a testament to the compassion of the people of Bristol. We’re grateful for everyone who has donated so far and to all the businesses who have stepped up to host a TAP Point” says Caring in Bristol’s Director Ben Richardson.
