A staggering €100,000 has been raised for Just Eat’s charity partner, the Peter McVerry Trust.

The online food delivery marketplace will be donating €50,000 to its long-standing charity partner, while, to date, a further €50,000 has been donated by its customers. 

Just Eat launched its Winter Charity Campaign, allowing customers to donate €1, €3 or €5 on the platform until January 3, 2023. 

Pat Doyle, CEO, Peter McVerry Trust, commented: “The money donated by Just Eat and their fantastic customers will be particularly valuable at this time of the year; winter is the busiest time of the year for our services and also the hardest for those impacted by homelessness. 

“We’re so grateful for the donation and also the volunteer support that Just Eat provides helping us to maintain our services. The support provided by Just Eat and their customers will help more people across Ireland leave homelessness behind, for good.”
