An online laundry service is backing a major campaign to help the homeless through the coronavirus pandemic.
Laundrapp is collecting donations from customers on behalf of Crisis as part of the charity’s In This Together emergency homelessness fund.
The company – which offers an online laundry and dry cleaning service across London and other UK towns and cities – has added a ‘donate’ option to its app checkout, giving customers the option to add a £1 donation to their basket. It has also set up a fundraising page for customers who wish to donate more.
What’s more, the company will add an additional 10 per cent on top of all donations received.
We've partnered with UK homeless charity, Crisis. We'll be collecting donations for them and adding 10% on top.
Crisis is delivering food and hygiene packages to rough sleepers, and working to get them off the streets, into safety.

Homeless people have been hit especially hard by the coronavirus outbreak – a fact underlined this week by a UN expert, who labelled many governments’ response to the crisis “inhumane”.
