Charities will benefit if they persuade their corporate supporters to take part. Those will do will commit to making a donation to charity for for each of its customers who sign up to Direct Debit.Consumers themselves will have an incentive to do so: everyone who switches to Direct Debit during the campaign is entered into a prize draw to win £10,000 towards their bills.The campaign will run for the first six months of 2012, and it will be supported by marketing materials and PR and social media support.Bacs charities sector manager Dawneth Perry said: “Charities can approach their own corporate supporters with a ready-made, off-the-shelf campaign which has benefits for the company as well as the charity. And with £10 per annum on average saved by converting customers from cash and cheque payments to Direct Debit, the amount they donate to their chosen charity could be taken from within that saving.”Further details from: [email protected] About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
