Some of Birmingham’s top restaurants have pledged to take part in the annual StreetSmart fundraising programme 2010. streetsmart-logo-header

Restaurateurs at participating venues are asked to place a voluntary addition of £1 to their bills which will then be used by the charity to help homeless causes around the city. StreetSmart raises thousands for homeless charities in your city every year during November and December, and in 2009 the campaign raised the incredible sum of £455,000.
All of the administration costs of StreetSmart are covered by its sponsors Deutsche Bank and the campaign will run from November 1 to December 31.
Contributions from customers are voluntary but participating restaurants will be displaying promotional material to inform them of the scheme.
The campaign has many celebrity backers including Stephen Fry, authors Irvine Welsh and Ian Rankin and chef Gordon Ramsey. More locally many of the Birmingham Restaurant chefs offer their support, including Andy Waters of Edmunds  “StreetSmart is important to us and our cusomters at Edmunds at this time of year, and has become part of Christmas for us. It’s everyone’s chance to do the right thing at the right time with only the gentlest nudge, and makes such a difference to those that need it.”
Now in its 13th year, StreetSmart is operational in around 600 restaurants, providing funds to 95 homeless charities across 18 cities.

So far the Birmingham Restaurant streetsmart support list includes:
•    Aria Restaurant – Hyatt Regency
