WE NEED YOUR HELP!!
Support Lakaz Maman at this difficult time by buying vouchers to use at a later date. If we reach £5k we will be able to get match funding by a grant.
We at Lakaz Maman are looking to raise £5,000 from our local customers as the Solent LEP have generously agreed to match fund this for us if we are lucky enough to reach our target!
Our family at Lakaz Maman is made up of 14 staff and we want to make sure that everyone has a job to come back to. The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of Britains small businesses like ourselves, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive.
So, we are calling upon YOU our extended Lakaz Maman family, our customers and supporters!! We need you to buy a gift voucher that you can use at a later date, or if you are feeling like you just want to help us through this difficult time we would also really appreciate any monetary donation towards that and we will be thankful to have the support!!
Even though there is government funding available it hasn't been enough to cover the basic costs of running a restaurant such as rent, maintenance, VAT and PAYE for example and unlike the big chains, we don't have investor support and bank loans that we could feasibly manage at this stage with the uncertainty of the current climate.
We can't wait to be back up and running feeding you all the Yummy Coco Buns and cooking away our big bubbling pots of island style curries..but until then...we thank you for all your support and custom throughout the years and hope you can help us achieve our target. We want to thank you all, from the entire team here at Lakaz Maman and we will see you on the other side!!
*For those who dont know the Solent LEP was formed after the government asked local areas to take control of their own economic development and they have a number of funds available to support economic growth across the South Coast.
