EPOS firm Zonal Retail Data Systems has teamed up with Pennies - a 'digital charity box' company - to offer customers the opportunity to give money to chosen charities.

The system, already used by high street brands such as Zizzi and Ask Italian, allows consumers to either top-up or round-up their card transactions with a small amount of additional funds for charity during payment.
Since the Pennies system was implemented in the UK more than five years ago it has raised £7m for in excess of 200 charities across the country. 
Chief executive of Zonal, Stuart McLean, said: “Being part of the hospitality industry we fully appreciate how charity fundraising sits at its very heart, so for Zonal it makes perfect sense to offer Pennies technology as part of our EPoS solutions.”


CEO of Pennies, Alison Hutchinson CBE, said: “The hospitality sector is a key area for Pennies to reach thousands more customers, offering them a chance to give their small change a big purpose.
"Pennies is now proven with many hospitality brands and we are therefore thrilled to partner with Zonal, the number one technology provider to this industry, who will help us unlock enormous new giving potential for UK charities.”
