Pixxles, a new comprehensive and secure payment processing solution for e-commerce merchants throughout the UK & EU, is getting behind a number of charities and causes with regular donations to help those who are worse affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Despite the social and economic challenges that are being experienced as a result of the crisis, there are some UK businesses within banking and payments who are looking to make a positive difference.
Scott Dawson, Head of Operations, Pixxles, said: “In these extraordinary and difficult times, it’s crucial for businesses to provide a positive contribution where possible to help overcome the challenges that we’re all currently facing together. It’s within this spirit that Pixxles has made a decision to donate to a variety of charities representing a multitude of important causes across the UK in the coming weeks in order to help the worst affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.”
