Happy Birthday, Keep Me Posted!

25th July 2018

Today marks the fifth anniversary of the launch of the Keep Me Posted Campaign.

Founded in July 2013, we are now a coalition of over 120 charitable organisations, consumer bodies, trade unions and businesses championing your right to choose, without additional cost, paper bills and statements.

We fight for your right to access paper bills and statements because we know it helps you to manage your finances more effectively than electronic statements (London Economics, 2015). You have the right to choose how you manage your finances.

We will continue to defend your right to choose.

“5 years ago hardly anyone had heard of the campaign and even less cared! Now…wherever we go the response we get is 'oh yes- we've heard of you'...so Happy Birthday to us but a massive thank you to you all.

“Please write to your MP and ask them to sign EDM 909 Keep Me Posted Campaign, your energy or phone company to see if they are signed up to Keep Me Posted and, if not, why not or write to us at Keep Me Posted, Freepost,” commented Judith Donovan CBE, Chair of Keep Me Posted UK.

A fifth anniversary is quite the milestone and we wanted to share our success with you all. The Sunday Express interviewed our Chair, Judith, to discuss our recent achievements and the plight of millennials as they navigate the complexities of their financial affairs through a digital world.

 

Our birthday letter to editors were featured in papers across the length and breadth of the UK from the Fife Free Press, down to the Yorkshire Evening Post all the way to the Cornish Times.  

To celebrate our birthday, we sent a birthday card to all of you who are signed up, all our Members of Parliament, our charitable supporters and corporate partners. We would like to thank Whistl for kindly paying for the postage.

Happy Birthday, Keep Me Posted.
