Global Car Hire Comparator Extends ‘Book and Donate’ Scheme to Raise Money for Newly Founded Charity

March 5, 2013

LONDON, March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –

National ‘Book and Donate’ scheme being rolled out in aid of recently

launched charity, Reuben’s Retreat

Global car hire comparator, Carrentals.co.uk, is re-launching its successful ‘Book and
Donate’ scheme to help raise funds for a newly founded charity. The scheme, in which the
comparison site donates GBP1 for every booking made on six designated days, has previously
been in conjunction with charities including National homeless not-for-profit organisation
‘StreetSmart’. However the scheme will be re-launched this month to fundraise for Reuben’s
Retreat.

Reuben’s Retreat is a charity set up in memory of Reuben Michael Graham who tragically
passed away aged 23 months. It is aiming to open a retreat in the North West countryside
that will relieve the distress of families and their close friends who have suffered the
bereavement of a child, or have a child suffering from a life limiting or life threatening
illness.

Alison Rothwell, Reuben’s Godmother and Project Manager of Reuben’s Retreat, said:
“The retreat will provide many services including respite breaks, sibling support,
counselling and recreational activities to those families who have suffered the loss of a
child or who care for a child with a life limiting or life threatening illness. We are
pleased to have the backing of a global company to help us achieve this and therefore we
urge those booking car hire to book through Carrentals.co.uk
[http://www.carrentals.co.uk/about/press-office/press-releases/reubens-retreat-book-donate.html ]
on a set ‘Book and Donate’ day where possible to help us with our cause.”

The charity was set up last year by Reuben’s parents after he passed away from a
cancerous brain tumour when he was less than two years old. The ‘Book and Donate’ scheme
will run from March – May, and throughout these months there will be two set days on
which, for every booking made, Carrentals.co.uk will donate GBP1 to Reuben’s Retreat.

The Book and Donate dates are:

5th and 19th March 2013

9th and 23rd April 2013

7th and 21st May 2013
