1. Asda and M&S launch Volunteer Cards
M&S and Asda have launched Volunteer cards . Anyone who is housebound can put money on the “card” and top it up at any time. The cards can be emailed to a volunteer or printed and left for the volunteer to collect. The card can be topped up at any time. To spend on the card the volunteer shows the barcode either on their phone or a print out so that it is contactless. It is anticipated that Sainsbury’s and Tesco will follow suit soon. More details on the Asda and M&S initiatives can be found here:
