We are asking for your support x
The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive.
Crowdfunder are offering up their platform to allow all UK small businesses to pre-sell gift vouchers etc. for cash now on a promise to redeem these at a later date.
The Northern Quarter Gallery was established in 2017 and is very much part of Manchester's exciting Art Scene. We are a quirky, innovative gallery, design studio and shop which is located on the 2nd floor of the world renowned Afflecks situated in the heart of the city's vibrant Northern Quarter.
The gallery showcases some of Manchester's most iconic artists also known as the NQ Collective. We are also a pop-up gallery with experience of exhibiting at conferences, festivals, department stores and empty shop units. We are a small gallery with a BIG vision and are desperate to re-open very soon.
This year has started so well with commissions on the books, pop up opportunities planned and also being featured on Visit Britain & Gay Cities and BBC's Money For Nothing.
Cold Feet also filmed in Afflecks and we even got to meet some of the cast in the gallery. It just felt like this was the year everything was really falling into place - until now which is desperately sad and difficult for us all.
So I would like to offer you the opportunity of purchasing vouchers from us to use once the gallery opens again. To say a huge thank you each donation will receive an extra 10% credit to spend and as an extra thank you and using the idea of paying forward we would like to design you a personalised greeting card that you can send on to someone else who might need it. So for example if you donated £10 you would receive a gift voucher of £11 and a personalised 'Sending you a huge hug' greeting card, a donation of £20 you would receive a voucher of £22 and 2 personalised greeting cards and so on.
The hope and dream is if we can raise enough money and with a lot of hard work we can hit the ground running once lockdown is lifted. Thank you for even just taking the time to read this. Stay safe and I look forward to seeing you on the other side x
