As we wrap up another year, many of us turn our minds to friends, family and to those who are less fortunate. DineSmart is back and, with a host of new restaurants taking part, it’s simple to lend a hand to people who are homeless this Christmas.

Since 2003 DineSmart has applied the simple model of asking diners to chip in an extra $1 on their bill and granting those donations to combat homelessness in the local community. You won’t be able to get a loved one a present with $1 this Christmas, but you could help change someone’s life, and it’s the collective power of restaurants and locals working together that makes it such a success.

DineSmart runs until 31 December so when you next dine at The Charming Squire, you may have one of our staff members ask if you’d like to donate with all donations passed straight on to DineSmart. Let’s work together this Christmas to help bring joy to the life of someone less fortunate!
