Help get Lauchie trading again
This is a fundraiser to help get Lauchie and his business back on the road. He cannot currently afford to replace what was stolen from him, and what he has been working so hard to build for the last 5 years. I am hoping with the help of friends and family we can help get him trading again, and for Locky's Kitchen to continue as it set off.
On the evening of the 26th September, Lauchie's new Ford Transit Connect was broken into, just outside where we live in Hackney Wick. We found it on the Monday, with the side door metal ripped off. What was left of Lauchie's street food set up was dispersed on the pavement around the van, and inside the van all of Lauchie's main equipment was gone.
What was taken
It was extremely distressing to see, and for years of Lauchie's hard work and savings to either be taken from him or seriously damaged. Out of his main equipment, he had his grills, bain marie, gas set up, gas bottles, gazebo, and card readers stolen, as well as other essential bits such as gloves, blue roll etc. We have worked the overall cost of items stolen to be worth around £2500.
What is means to him
Lauchie has been working for the last 5 years to get this all together, and to have gotten to the incredible position to be able to be trading 5 days a week at Leather Lane Market in London. As family and friends, I know we were all extremely proud of him to get to this point, and to be living his dream as a full time street food trading.
How we can help
It would be absolutely crushing for this to stop Lauchie doing what he loves, and I am therefore asking for donations, however big or small, to help get Lauchie back on the road to success. Any money given will go directly back into the business.
And as a thank you...
If we manage to reach our target, then anyone who donates £10 or more will also get one of Locky's wraps on the house (once he's trading again) at Leather Lane Market.
