ChariTable, a digital restaurant booking service that gives to charity every time a table reservation is made, has been launched.
When making a booking through charitablebookings.org or the iOS app, the user can choose from a growing list of over 4,500 restaurants across the UK. For EVERY diner in the party £1 will be donated by the restaurant, to a charity of the booker’s choice.
Customers can choose a charitable cause close to their heart every time they make a booking at over 7,500 UK registered charities from local projects to global endeavours. They include a wide range of causes: education: the elderly, health, the environment, veterans, the homeless, animal welfare, the arts, children’s wellbeing and many more.
Uniquely, ChariTable Bookings allows customers to call the restaurant directly when making reservations, as opposed to other platforms which only offer online bookings.
ChariTable Bookings holds the user’s directory of favourite restaurants; from the little local Italian round the corner and the regular business/corporate lunch location, to the weekend gastro pub.
It also includes the ability to see the restaurant’s sustainability credentials, guide price, type of cuisine, address with map, ratings, photographs, awards, and a description of the restaurant.
Given the UK’s love of eating out, the charity says that for every 100 people booking a table for four people once a week, £20,800 per year would be raised in funds for a charitable cause.
ChariTable Bookings is an initiative of The Global Charity Trust and a company with a social purpose. Set up by the Trustees Lord Fink and David Johnstone in 2011, The Global Charity Trust’s philanthropic mission is to promote a social conscience and has raised to date over £2,000,000 net to directly support hundreds of local and worldwide charity projects by raising much needed funds and awareness.
