Carrentals.co.uk Raises Thousands of £s for StreetSmart with New ‘Book & Donate’ Day

London, UK (RPRN) 04/10/12 — Car hire experts help leading homeless charities to generate funds for worthy causes

Leading Internet-based car hire comparison site Carrentals.co.uk this week reports that its latest ‘Book & Donate’ day has helped to raise more than £5,000 for leading homeless charity StreetSmart. The website's events will see Streetsmart able to spread the grand total of £5,662 through over 90 homeless charities in 19 UK cities

Carrentals.co.uk also conducted a ‘12 days of Christmas’ competition in December which saw the £700 prize value donated to StreetSmart too. On top of the ‘Book & Donate’ sum, which raised £2,131, and the UK government matching the donation, StreetSmart is set to receive a grand total of £5,662.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, says: “StreetSmart works to support many of the UK’s most vulnerable homeless citizens with fantastic educational projects and much more."

“Between our ‘Book & Donate’ days and our Christmas competition - plus the government’s funding - StreetSmart is set to receive over £5,000. We'd like to express our thanks to our customers for helping to generate such a great sum for such a worthwhile cause.”

Each year StreetSmart runs its major fundraising events in conjunction with leading UK restaurants such as Nobu, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay. The restaurants help StreetSmart out by adding £1 donations to each customer's bill.

Glenn Pougnet, Director of StreetSmart, says: “Our work is vital for the country's homeless people and we work with over 90 homeless charities across the UK to help them out. We're delighted with the work done by Carrentals.co.uk and its customers and we too extend our thanks and gratitude to them both.”
