Cornish restaurants sign up to support charity scheme
9:00am Sunday 21st October 2012 in News
Restaurants across Cornwall are getting StreetSmart ready for November in a campaign to help three local charities.
StreetSmart is a campaign which raises funds for the homeless by asking permission to add £1 onto each table’s bill during November and December.
With a range of online and offline promotions to encourage dinners to eat at participating restaurants, the restaurants should enjoy a raised profile whilst helping to raise funds.
Part of a national initiative with a local focus, all money raised in Cornwall stays in the county and all administration costs are paid by national StreetSmart sponsor Deutsche Bank, which means that every pound donated goes to the three benefitting charities - St Petroc’s Society, the Cornwall Women’s Refuge Trust and the Cornish branches of Foodbank.
Restaurants keep count of how much has been raised and brief their staff to thank customers and answer questions related to the scheme – raising both funding and understanding of the charities.
12 restaurants have already signed up to support the campaign this year, many of which have supported the initiative each winter for several years. These are Bustophers, The Old Quay Inn, The Golden Lion, Nathan Outlaw’s Seafood & Grill, The Riverbank, Courtyard Deli, Rosewarne Manor, Treloyhan Manor, Steins Cornish Arms, Amanzi and Archie Browns Truro and Penzance.
If your restaurant would like to join the campaign to raise funds for these three vital charities, whilst enjoying various marketing benefits, contact Eventy – Marketing & PR on 01326 376273 or for more info about StreetSmart, visit www.streetsmart.org.uk.
