Our Story

Our story centers around 'Dave the butcher', his clients and staff. Dave is a small business proudly serving his community but affected by the bank branch closures.

Meet Dave

Dave the Butcher

Dave runs a small butcher shop where most of his customers pay in cash.

Since the last bank in his town closed, he now has to take two hours from his working day to travel to his nearest branch in the next town just to pay in the daily takings.

Dave joins the 40% of SME’s finding it difficult or expensive to access bank depositing services.
