We're still collecting donations

On the 15th April 2020 we'd raised £3,427 with 78 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

 New stretch target

Pay rent and staff for a longer duration.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for us all, we are facing closure unless we get support and for our business to survive. 

Crowdfunder are offering up their platform to allow all UK small businesses to pre-sell their meals, events, hotel bookings etc. for cash now on a promise to redeem these at a later date. 

We would love if you could perhaps pay for a masterclass ticket for a future date, a round of drinks or even just a beer. Every little helps and means so much. 

With your help we can stay afloat, look after our staff, pay rent and hopefully one day soon come back with one hell of a party!

Our drink suppliers and brands are being incredible and have some fantastic ideas for when we reopen. Our team is working on a menu like never before as well as training on all aspects of the industry including wine and spirit knowledge. 

We thank you in advance for you support and wish you all well, stay safe and don;t hesitate to contact us if we can be of any help to you, 

very best wishes, 

Team Dark Bear x
