Restaurants throughout Cornwall are preparing to get StreetSmart this winter, in an annual campaign to raise funds for three local charities.
StreetSmart is a national campaign that aims to raise money each year for the homeless, via a voluntary £1 donation added to restaurant bills during November and December.
With the weight of a national campaign behind it and a London headquarters, all money raised in Cornwall stays within the Duchy as all administration costs are paid by national StreetSmart sponsor Deutsche Bank.
St Petroc’s Society, the Cornwall Women’s Refuge Trust and the Cornish branches of Foodbank are the three local charities set to benefit from the scheme.
Fifteen restaurants have already signed up to support the campaign this year, including: Bustophers Bar Bistro in Truro, The Old Quay Inn in Devoran, The Cornish Arms in Padstow, Archie Browns in Truro and Penzance, Trevaskis Farm in Hayle, Nathan Outlaw’s Restaurant in Rock, Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen in Port Isaac, Porthminster Beach Café in St Ives, Alba in St Ives, The Tolcarne Inn in Newlyn, The Victoria Inn in Penzance, Trennick Mill in Truro, The Square in Porthleven, The Blue Plate in Looe, Mustard and Rye in Truro, Treloyhan Manor in St Ives, The Halsetown Inn in St Ives and The Harbour Kitchen Supply Store in Port Isaac.
If your restaurant would like to join the campaign, email coordinator Lucy Cornes of Cornwall Content.
