Cornish restaurants gearing up to help homeless through StreetSmart
RESTAURANTS throughout Cornwall are preparing to back an annual campaign to raise funds for three local charities.
The national StreetSmart initiative raises money for the homeless via a voluntary £1 donation added to restaurant bills during November and December.
Money raised in Cornwall stays within the county as administration costs are paid by sponsor Deutsche Bank. The charity recipients are St Petroc's Society, the Cornwall Women's Refuge Trust and the Cornish branches of foodbank.
Co-ordinator Lucy Cornes said: "Starting on November 1 participating restaurants ask diners permission to add £1 for the table to the bill. Although customers can decline to donate, most happily offer £1 and sometimes more.
