A recently launched booking platform offers restaurant goers the ability to give to charity at no extra cost every time they make a reservation.
After two years of development, ChariTable Bookings (www.charitablebookings.org
) is up and running allowing users to give back to charity at absolutely no cost to themselves whenever they make a reservation. When making a booking through the user friendly website or iOS app, the user can choose from a growing list of over 7,000 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. The site also holds the user’s directory of favourite restaurants; from the little local Italian round the corner and the regular business or corporate lunch location, to the weekend gastro pub.
Following the successful launch of the booking platform The Signature Dish
recipe book is about to be published. David Johnstone, CEO and founder of ChariTable Bookings, has brought together 365 leading UK chefs and restaurants with their main course signature dish recipes to create the perfect gift for all foodies. The elegantly designed 754 page hardback recipe book, encased in a stylish sleeve, features an incredible array of mouth-watering main course dishes across a wide range
of cuisines. From simple hearty meals and exotic spicy creations, to Michelin star wonders and dinner party crowd pleasers; this book will bring the taste of some of the best restaurants. Contributors include John Williams at The Ritz, Marcus Wareing, Pierre Koffmann, Anton Mosimann, Sean Burbridge at The Ivy, Alan Coxon, Mickael Weiss at Quaglino’s, Tom Kerridge, Paul Ainsworth and Albert Roux.
Johnstone remarks: “We wanted to do something big, that hadn’t been attempted before, bringing together leading UK chefs and restaurants in support of thousands of charities”.
The book costs £36.50 including a £5 donation to a charity of the purchaser’s choice from a list of over 7,500 UK registered charities. Pre-orders are available at the online store at www.charitablebookings.org up until 14th February 2017 with the donation doubled to £10 for pre-orders and also including free UK delivery.
