Sparks children’s charity implements new QR code donations system


Checkprint, a provider of secure paper and payment solutions, has created and applied uniquely personalised two dimensional QR codes for children’s medical research charity Sparks.

The new system will allow Sparks to incorporate QR codes into its welcome letters for the 2014 Bake for Bumps campaign, which will give fundraisers the option to pay funds using the Barclays Pingit smartphone app, which has a built-in QR code scanner.

Laura White, Head of Regional Fundraising at Sparks, said: “We have worked with Checkprint for a number of years and its solutions have helped us raise a vast amount of money for medical research. By generating QR codes for our latest Bake for Bumps campaign Checkprint will save us, and our supporters, even more valuable time and money which we can put to good use in other areas of Sparks’ work.”

Milon Veasey, Head of Mobile Solutions Specialists at Barclays, added: “People today are looking for quick, easy and convenient payment option which is driving the demand for mobile payment solutions and charities like Sparks are fully recognising this. Barclays Pingit provides an easy and secure way for people to make those all-important charity donations, at anytime and anywhere.”
