At s&m café we strongly believe in supporting local and national good causes. Here is some information about the charities that we are currently working with and how you can get involved.
We have been working with Barts and The London Charity to raise money for the new London Cancer Centre, based at St Barts Hospital, which is a stones throw from our Smithfield café and due to open in March 2010.
This will be a leading cancer treatment and research centre offering a full range of services for patients, including pioneering new medical and surgical treatments.

Centrepoint is the leading national charity working to improve the lives of homeless young people.
Centrepoint works to give homeless young people a future. To realise this future we provide a safe place off the streets to more than 800 homeless young people aged 16-25 every night.
However, our work is about much more than just providing a safe bed for the night, we help young people to turn their lives around by gaining essential life skills; tackling their physical and mental health issues and moving into education or employment.
s&m café has been supporting Centrepoint since 2008, offering incredible support with the annual Centrepoint Sleep Out, one of Centrepoint's biggest awareness raising and fundraising events and by creating a programme of job opportunities for the young people supported by centrepoint.

Cystic Fibrosis Trust
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust work with the organisers of British Sausage week to help raise funds for the UK’s most common life threatening disease. This partnership is perfect, because sufferers often have poor appetites so require food high in protein and calories to maintain a healthy body weight in order to have the strength to fight infection.
Every year s&m café support the CFT by organising fundraising activities and hosting events for British Sausage week, as well as facilitating donations to the charity from customers.

The Bright Future Trust
Additionally, the owners of the business have their own private charity called the Bright Future Trust. Since 2005 Bright Future has been helping to improve the lives of people of all age groups facing extraordinary adversity all over the world.
The commitment of the Trust is to building a brighter future for children and young adults everywhere. The charity seeks to achieve this by making charitable investments in projects, which share our ambitions for young people. Whether it’s supporting community projects in South Africa, groundbreaking medical research in the UK or educational grants in Thailand, the investments are making a difference not just today, but for generations to come.
