‘Book and Donate’ Scheme Raises Over £200 for Charity With Two Months Still to Go
LONDON, November 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Leading car hire comparison site Carrentals.co.uk raises over GBP200 in its
first ‘Book and Donate’ month for homeless charity ‘StreetSmart’ – with two months still
to go to raise even more
For the second year running, leading car hire comparison website CarrentalsUK has
teamed up with the charity StreetSmart for another ‘Book and Donate’ campaign. The first
two donate days in November, 4th and 26th, have raised over GBP200 already and there are
still days in both December and January to come.
The ‘Book and Donate’ days, of which there are two a month for three consecutive
months, means that Carrentals.co.uk will donate GBP1 for every booking made on its site to
StreetSmart. Launched in 1998, the charity has raised and distributed over GBP5.5 million
to a range of causes, including education and training initiatives, supported housing and
Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, said: “Our two ‘Book and
Donate’ days in November have gone really well and we have already raised GBP211. With two
still to come in both December and January next year we are hoping for a great total for
the charity. I’d like to urge anyone booking car hire in the next couple of months to take
part in the days where possible, as you will be contributing to such a worthwhile cause.”
StreetSmart runs a number of campaigns every year, including working in partnership
with well-known restaurants across the UK, such as Nobu, The Groucho Club and Restaurant
Gordon Ramsay, who add a voluntary GBP1 donation to the bottom of each table bill. All of
the donations are then distributed nationally across its charity projects.
The next ‘Book and Donate’ days for Carrentals.co.uk will be 4th and 18th December
2012, followed by the final dates, 8th and 22nd January 2013.
