Carrentals.co.uk Announces Second ‘Book & Donate’ Day for StreetSmart Charity

London, UK (RPRN) 01/24/12 — Online car hire specialist gives £1 per booking made on January 25  in support of UK homeless

Online rental comparison website Carrentals.co.uk has announced that it will run its second ‘Book & Donate’ day on 25 January this year. The day will see the company will donate £1 per booking to StreetSmart, the group that helps 90 UK homeless charities through fundraising activities.

The Carrentals.co.uk ‘Book & Donate’ day on 11 January eventually generated more than £330 for StreetSmart. The work carried out by StreetSmart includes education, training, housing and health initiatives for UK homeless people and the campaign is backed by Stephen Fry, Neil Morrissey and Richard Bacon.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, comments: “We were so pleased with our first ‘Book & Donate’ day that it seemed a logical step to hold another one. Each car hire booking that is made through Carrentals.co.uk on the 25th January will see a £1 donation to StreetSmart – something that can make a major difference to people sleeping rough in the UK.”

Carrentals.co.uk has already planned ‘Book & Donate’ days for the dates of February 8th and 22nd, and March 7th and 21st.

“Our advice to anybody planning to rent a car is to do so on one of our forthcoming ‘Book & Donate’ days,” continues Gareth. “However we also counsel advance booking to be sure of getting the very best prices and plenty of availability in popular destinations.”

The StreetSmart campaign also includes major fundraising pushes each November and December which includes some of the country's top restaurants like Nobu, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay. The restaurants add £1 donations to people's bills to generate funds each table bill. All of the £1 donations are then passed on to StreetSmart to go to its worthy charity projects.

Glenn Pougnet, director of StreetSmart, comments: “We thoroughly appreciate this type of support from Carrentals.co.uk and all the homeless charities we work with benefit as a result.”
