Pret partners with Contactless Giving Week to help raise funds for homelessness
The Pret Foundation has partnered with Contactless Giving Week this month to raise awareness and support cashless fundraising as it looks to help break the cycle of homelessness.
The Pret Foundation supports a range of charities that are dedicated to alleviating poverty, hunger and homelessness and, earlier this year, over 40 Pret shops were fitted with GoodBox contactless giving devices to raise funds.
During Contactless Giving Week, which runs from 6 to 12 December, the charity will be aiming to maximise its fundraising efforts for homelessness through the donation points.
Nina Allard, head of The Pret Foundation, said: “At The Pret Foundation we are dedicated to helping homeless people in the UK, and around world, in the communities local to our Pret shops. We know that this year has been especially difficult for those faced with homelessness. That’s why we chose to partner with Goodbox and Contactless Giving week to encourage Pret customers to support our work through contactless giving.”
GoodBox co-founder and managing director Francesca Hodgson added: “It is amazing to see the generosity of the UK public even during this difficult period and we are delighted to be able to support The Pret Foundation this Contactless Giving Week. Offering a simple contactless donation point has been proven to raise more funds as so many potential donors don’t have cash available.”
