We’re all in need of some good news and Street Smart’s hugely successful annual campaign to support homeless people can offer just that right now. Over 500 restaurants have currently signed up to their £1 per table donation scheme including big names like Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, The Fat Duck and D&D London to name a few, with many more expected to follow.
The aim of the campaign is simple and easy for diners to opt in and out of. This steady stream of donations over the next couple of months can make all the difference and as Chef Jeremy Lee from Quo Vadis puts it ‘with this tiny effort you can end up with a large lump sum after Christmas. It’s a small gesture for a big problem.‘
StreetSmart has raised over £11.2 million and now operates in 24 cities across the UK. Over 50 homelessness charities now benefit each year, with funds supporting services like the creation of beds, housing, mental health advice and training and job support.
There is still time to sign up. The registration form can be found here: https://streetsmart.org.uk/about-streetsmart/sign-up/
