Big You, Little You needs to move - will you help?

Our shop is being sold so sadly we need to move, but with your help we can make a new bigger space into a better venue.

by Anna Martin in Liverpool, Merseyside, England

We did it
On 28th March 2018 we successfully raised £4,758 with 64 supporters in 21 days

New stretch target

Once we've raised enough to ensure we can cover the deposit for the new venue, anything else we make will help make the transition into it run more smoothly. This will benefit our customers as we'll be able to roll out the new timetable more quickly and introduce new sessions too. 



Moving Home

Our little shop has been running since 2013 in Garston, L19 and during that time we've worked with hundreds of families attending our own Massage and Yoga sessions as well as activities run in partnership with other organisations - NCT drop ins, Baby Book Club with Little Scribbles' Stories, Workshops with Liverpool Sling Library,  Daisy Birthing, The Postitive Birth Movement or even using Liverpool Cloth Nappy Library.  Although it's small, it's been a lovely home to us for the past (almost) 5 years.

However, our shop is being sold soon and so we need to move on, into a bigger and even better venue.

 

A New Space?

We've found a lovely space, still in L19, that would allow us to keep our shop space running, but also to open up our workshop rooms for more other groups to use as well, so we'd be able to bring you a new, exciting timetable full of relaxation, bonding and play for families to share, as well as more treatment rooms for pamper sessions and therapies.

We’ve secured the space with a deposit however, we need to get right off to a great start with our activities to cover the first few months of rent.  So we've decided - along with some of the other organisations who'll be using the space - to use crowdfunder to open up advanced bookings to you. We've put together a provisional timetable to give you an idea of the days we expect different sessions to be running, although there may still be changes as new options are added. Meeting our prebooking target will speed everything up so your sessions will be able to start in May.  If anything goes wrong before the tenancy is signed then we will cancel the crowedfunder and any payments will be refunded in full, protecting your payments.

Nothing to suit you?

There's also a Pay It Forward donation option - if you don't live locally or have a growing family of the right ages to take advantage of our offers you can contribute to reducing prices for families who are entitled to concessionary places as a way to support us.
