The Dine and Donate promotion will run from 1–14 March 2018, during which time Groupon will donate £1 for each restaurant or dining experience purchased included in Dine and Donate.
There are over 400 restaurant deals to choose from in London and beyond, including fine dining, afternoon teas and even wine tasting.

We are so proud to be able to partner with FareShare, a charity that has such a massive impact in this area but also a team of incredibly passionate and dedicated people.”
