Campaign Aims To Save Cash And Halt Move To Digital-Only Currency

More than five million adults still rely on cash in the UK, and it’s used in six billion transactions each year, yet more and more shops, pubs and cafes are choosing to only accept card payments. Many of the people most impacted by this drive towards digital-only currency are older. They find the move to digital payments is tricky, both from a technical angle, but also from a practical point of view. They have managed their money successfully throughout their adults lives and find this virtually enforced change is both frightening and difficult.

The news channel GB News is running a campaign to halt this process. GB News’ Economics and Business Editor Liam Halligan said: “We know that over a million households in this country don’t have a bank account, they don’t have debit cards. We know that five million Brits rely on cash each day to fulfil their basic needs.”
