Save when you travel

Whenever you spend in foreign currency, whether that’s online shopping or travelling abroad, your bank will typically charge 3-5% in fees. Your new debit card removes the bank fees. Some or all of those savings can automatically be donated. You decide how much.

About St Martin-in-the-Fields Trust

St Martin-in-the-Fields has been serving London for centuries, and while our building might be nearly 300 years old, our commitment to be here for everyone who needs us is unwavering.

We are known and loved for our inspiring services and enlightened thinking, beautiful building and for our compassion for people who are homeless and vulnerable.

We work with young musicians, offering year-long training programmes and unrivalled professional performance opportunities from our stage in the heart of London, with our broadcast partners and on national and international tours.

Through a new capital project called 18 Keys, we are working with the Connection at St Martin’s to improve the lives of women moving away from homelessness.

By using the Currensea Debit card and choosing to support St Martin's, you'll be helping sustain all of our work; at the church, in music and with people on the edge of society.

The St Martin-in-the-Fields Trust is a registered charity (no. 1110406).

About St Martin-in-the-Fields Trust
Improving lives

Spotlight on our projects:

Unlocking a brighter future for women experiencing homelessness

There are more women sleeping rough than ever before, and the numbers are steeply rising. But despite this, homelessness services are mainly geared towards men and are simply not equipped to address the dire and complex needs of women – needs which drove many of them to homelessness in the first place.

The 18 Keys capital project will transform existing accommodation, creating a new communal kitchen and living space, one to one therapy rooms and additional studio apartments.  The new building will be linked by a shared therapeutic garden to the main accommodation on site.

These facilities will make the vital difference between housing women and giving them what they need to move to independent lives and jobs.

By using the Currensea Debit card, you will help to fund projects such as 18 Keys in 2022.
