CityGrab food delivery app to donate this weekend’s delivery fees to two Chesterfield charities
CityGrab, a local food delivery app created by City Taxis, will donate all delivery fees from this weekend’s orders to two Chesterfield charities, Ashgate Hospicecare and Chesterfield Royal Hospital Charity.
For each of the ‘31 Days in May’ you can order local food and products on the citygrab app, with each weekend dedicated to supporting a local charity. Friday 15th May to Monday 18th May will see funds raised for two local Chesterfield charities, Ashgate Hospicecare and Chesterfield Royal Charity, to help support the fantastic work they are doing providing patient treatment and specialist end of life care under the most challenging circumstances.
Since its launch, local businesses including Afats Grill, Odyssey Greek, Qoozies, Pizza Pi, North Sea Fish Bar, Fat Pig BBQ, Tiffin & Casa Hotel now have food and products available to order through the app.
Russ Wilkinson, Manager of City Taxis said: “To say these are difficult times for our local charities is an understatement, as every penny counts for individuals, families and local businesses”.
He added: “I hope that by donating the citygrab delivery fees to our charity partners, reflects the gratitude we have for the support they give to the community of Chesterfield. I would like to add that these donations are made possible by the continued hard work of our drivers.”
Karen Walker, Ward Sister at Ashgate Hospicecare, said: “Our patients need us more than ever before, but providing that care has never been so challenging. With the support of our community and local businesses like citygrab, we can be there for those who desperately need our care.”
Beverley Webster, Chesterfield Royal Hospital Charity Chair, said: “On behalf of the Charity I would like to pass on our thanks and appreciations. It’s a challenging time for businesses, so this is an incredibly kind and generous gesture. The ‘31 days of May’ campaign that City Taxis are running through their citygrab app is a really innovative way to support local charities like ours. We have some really exciting plans that will make a real difference to patients in hospital – and to the staff who are working hard to provide exceptional care in unprecedented circumstances. Any donations we receive will be used wisely and for maximum benefit.”
To show your support, simply place an order on the citygrab app between 6pm on Friday 15th May and 6am Monday 18th May and your delivery fee will be automatically donated. The total amount raised will be split evenly between the charities.
