Third of Brits never carry cash, Pennies research finds

The UK’s ever increasing shift to digital payments is leaving the need for good old fashioned cash taking the first steps on the road to extinction. A recent study conducted by Pennies, the digital charity box, has revealed that a staggering 30% of us regularly leave the house without any cash, whilst almost half (47%) of 16-24 year olds use their cards for payments under £2 and three quarters (75%) use their card for payments under £5.
