BBC Children in Need is the latest charity to start using contactless card readers in its bid to collect a record number of donations.
The annual fundraiser will see Pudsey Bear positioned at 15 underground stations across London from November 14-16, giving change-less commuters a chance to quickly donate £5 by tapping their card or smartphone on an iZettle contactless payment reader.
The switch to contactless is a first for Children in Need in its 38-year history, as more people move away from carrying cash on them.
