The Prize

Our prize draw is offering one lucky winner a £3000 bar tab to be redeemed in Alvarium, but not only this we are also offering a luxury stay right on the border of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Our very kind friends at the Kings Arms in Kirkby Lonsdale have offered up a weekend stay in one of their picturesque cottages along with a meal at the top-rated restaurant in the area, Number Nine Bar & Kitchen. Single Entries are £3 with two entries costing £5. If you wish to enter for free, postal entries are also available.

The Cause

It’s been a tough 2 years for us here at Alvarium. After Manchester City Council swept the rug out from under our feet by taking away our road closure, making summer exceptionally difficult for us. This alongside our insurers refusing to pay out for business disruption suffered during Covid, despite the Ombudsman instructing them to do so, on the grounds that we retained our staff by using the furlough scheme. So, if we would have let all of our staff go and not claimed furlough, they would have honoured our claim - an option which has always been out of the question for us. During this time, we have had to make some very difficult decisions to try and survive. However, the owners of the building are trying to close any possible avenue open to us to generate extra revenue to get Alvarium flourishing again, leaving us feeling very lost.

We love Alvarium and we hope you do too, therefore we’re asking for your help.

The funds raised will contribute to giving Alvarium some much needed TLC. A fresh rebrand with a good lick of paint. There are some essential repairs that need to be carried out to the plumbing and electrics and will also go a long way into making a dent in the crippling debt that we had to take on to remain in business throughout Covid.
