Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of, 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 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.” 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.
