Leading gift card retailer wins at pay before awards
One4all, the leading multi retailer gift card company, has again been recognised as an industry leader at the prestigious Paybefore Awards Europe.
Its’ award-winning One4all gift card won the award for ‘Best in Category’ for the ‘Prepaid with Soul’ category, which is the only award that represents corporate social responsibility, at the award ceremony, in Marbella, on May 20th.
The Paybefore Awards Europe was created to recognise excellence and innovation in the European prepaid, mobile and emerging payment market. A panel of five industry experts judged the 2014 awards.
One4all won the award for ‘Prepaid with Soul’ for its collaborative work with Post Office Ltd and BBC Children in Need. Last year, One4all pitched in to help the charity, which supports disadvantaged children all over the world, and donated 2 per cent of the value of every gift card purchased to Children in Need. Card recipients were also given the option to donate the value of the gift card to the charity.
The One4all BBC Children in Need Gift Card was distributed online and throughout 11,500 Post Office locations nationwide and helped Post Office to raise almost £1,000,000 for this great cause while also raising brand awareness and public support for the BBC’s efforts. The multi store gift card beat stiff competition, ICE Travellers Cashcard and fastPay, to be awarded the prestigious title.
Commenting on the recent win, One4all Group CEO, Michael Dawson, commented, ‘This is a fantastic win for One4all, especially to win against fantastic competition including ICE Travellers Cashcard and fastPay. At One4all, we strive to team up with a charity each year, and give back as part of our corporate social responsibility policy, and it’s fantastic to see this being recognised.’
Lynda McGovern One4all UK Head of Marketing added “We’re so pleased that the collaboration with Post Office Ltd and BBC Children in Need was such a successful one, raising a fantastic sum of money for this great cause. We’d of course like to thank Post Office Ltd and BBC Children in Need for their hard work, and allowing us to be part of last year’s charity campaign.”
Editor-in-chief of Paybefore, Loraine DeBonis, also commented One4all’s win saying, “It’s great to see a company, which has worked alongside a charity with fantastic results, being recognised. One4all raised a lot of money for Children in Need, and it’s encouraging to see how a prepaid gift card make a difference and significant social impact.”
