£5.6m raised to help those in poverty
The impact of the donations made to Oxfam through this relationship has been significant, with nearly £5m raised by Oxfam credit card holders so far.
The initiative has clearly been popular with The Co-operative Bank's customers, with more than 15,000 opting to take out the Oxfam credit card and many more choosing to donate their Current Account rewards.
The beauty of the Oxfam credit card is that it makes it easy for Co-operative Bank customers to regularly donate just by using their credit cards. Everyday activities such as paying for the weekly shop, or filling up the car with petrol generates a donation which is used to support the valuable work of Oxfam.
In addition donations from The Co-operative Bank's current account switching incentive has raised over £60k.
The Co-operative Bank's relationship with Oxfam has been a win-win all round. For Co-operative Bank customers it's a way to support a charity that they're passionate about; for The Co-operative Bank it has given customers another reason to bank with them; and for Oxfam it is helping raise vital funds to support life-changing work around the world.
