“The way in which consumers perceive brands has a huge influence on the effectiveness of that brand’s advertising. The Smart Bench network provides an opportunity for brands and local boroughs to create positive, impactful experiences for communities, who benefit from the various smart utilities provided by the network. Partnering with Strawberry Energy, we’re very excited to initially launch the Smart Bench Network with Cancer Research UK, supporting World Cancer Day and pioneering tap to pay contactless fundraising on street furniture.”

Christopher Nicola,
Head of Urban Partnerships, MKTG



”These Smart Benches seemed like the next step in our use of contactless technology to bring charitable giving closer to our supporters, integrating it seamlessly into cutting-edge street furniture.”

Paul Weaver,
digital innovation manager at Cancer Research UK



“I’m very pleased that Lewisham is part of the start of this network of smart benches. We’re working hard to ensure the borough has the infrastructure it needs now and in the future. Finding creative ways to make the most of our public spaces benefits local communities and attracts people to come and see the great things Lewisham has to offer.”

Councillor Rachel Onikosi,
Lewisham Cabinet Member for the Public Realm
