Online rentals specialist charity drive supports StreetSmart activities in 19 UK cities
07 APRIL 2012 – Online car hire comparison specialist Carrentals.co.uk, the dedicated rental car website, has raised more than £5,000 for Streetsmart with its latest ‘Book & Donate’ day. The charity drive took £1 per booking through the site - with Carrentals.co.uk generating a total of £5,662 for Streetsmart through its recent campaigns.
As well as the money raised by Book & Donate, Streetsmart will also benefit from the £700 prize money generated by the Carrentals.co.uk ‘12 days of Christmas’ scheme. This sum was added to the ‘Book & Donate’ total of £2,131 - and then doubled up by the UK government to give Streetsmart £5,662 in total.
Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, said: “It's a real privilege to work with such progressive charities as Streetsmart, and we're delighted to have raised so much money for them through our ‘Book & Donate’ work.”
“Our customers are a generous lot and their contributions will enable to keep Streetsmart working on its vital projects for the UK homeless.”
Each November and December StreetSmart conducts its main charity drives and works with top UK restaurants to do so. Previous campaigns have featured Nobu, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, at which a pound was added on to each customer's bill to make a donation to StreetSmart.
Glenn Pougnet, Director of StreetSmart, commented: "Our work is essential to helping homeless people throughout the UK and so we are delighted when companies like Carrentals.co.uk work with us in this way.”
