Flexible funding – this project will receive all pledges made by 17th May 2021 at 11:55pm

We're raising money for a new Community Organiser to help us deal with London commercial rent prices, which are out of control.

UPDATE: If you join this affiliate group you can contribute whatever you can afford to pay for your first year as a member. This offer is open until 17th May only.

It's been a difficult year for small businesses and rapidly rising rent costs are making it even tougher. We moved to Leyton in January 2020, because our rent was unaffordable. If we had stayed in Spitalfields, the overheads would have shut Gardners' down, after more than 150 years in business. 

Now more than ever, we as small businesses need to unite against massive rent hikes and unforgiving landlords. This crowdfunder set up by the  East End Trades Guild will be used to fund a new community organiser to help us achieve this goal.

Over the last decade, the Guild has had many successes - helping to fight back against business rate increases in 2017 and developing methods for greater transparency of uncontrolled rent increases. We're moving from strength to strength and want you to join in too!

We have an opportunity to work together and bring about fair rents - together we are stronger.

By joining as part of our group you will receive 1/3 off annual fees and help fund a community organiser to represent us as a collective.
