The Pret Foundation has partnered with Contactless Giving Week this December to raise awareness and support cashless fundraising for their work towards breaking the cycle of homelessness. Earlier this year, over 40 Pret shops were fitted with GoodBox contactless giving devices to raise funds to help to break the cycle of homelessness.

The aim of The Pret Foundation is the alleviation of poverty, hunger and homelessness and supports many charities in this sector. This Contactless Giving Week the charity is keen to maximise its fundraising by offering contactless donation points at its 40 locations.

Contactless Giving Week brings individuals, companies and not for profits across the UK together to support charitable campaigns and raise awareness of the importance of contactless giving. This year The Pret Foundation has partnered with the Contactless Giving Week to continue to raise the profile of their contactless fundraising efforts in shops around the UK running from 6 to 12 December.

GoodBox Co-Founder & Managing Director Francesca Hodgson said, “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.”

Nina Allard, Head of The Pret Foundation added, “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”.
