Finance News: Home banker

A bank account launched by charity sector bank Triodos has raised nearly £12,000 so far this year for Christian homelessness charity Housing Justice. Under the Just Housing account, for every pound invested by savers 0.25p is donated by the bank. Since its launch in 1998, savers have invested £4.5m, netting Housing Justice just under £50,000 in donations. The money has been loaned out to voluntary sector housing projects, such as the North London Foyer, which houses young people threatened with homelessness. David Walker (pictured), Bishop of Dudley and chairman of Housing Justice, said: “While Britain has prospered, life for a significant minority has worsened. This account is a new way of mobilising Christian concern.”
