London-wide smart bench scheme launches in Lewisham
Lewisham has teamed up with Strawberry Energy and Cancer Research UK to pilot a new smart bench scheme.
Powered by solar panels, the benches feature mobile device charging ports and access to free Wi-Fi. The benches have been installed at five locations across the borough:
Lewisham Clock Tower
Lewis Grove, Albion Way
Near the Model Market
New Cross Road, Clifton Rise
The benches are being piloted in Lewisham and Islington, and will be rolled out across London over the year. The scheme was launched to coincide with World Cancer Day, which is on 4 February. You can donate £2 to Cancer Research UK from the smart benches by simply tapping them with your contactless debit or credit card.
