COVID-19 has hit the world like a wrecking ball, and we are looking for some help to pick up the pieces and make sure they stay together.

by The Winston Hotel in Southampton, England, United Kingdom

The Winston Hotel is a local community bar that has been around for many years, it was recently sold to new owners which went smoothly, staff jobs were saved and a refurbishment commenced aiming to transform the hotel and bar into and even better place to socialise with friends and family. 


Sadly, COVID-19 then hit and things were thrown out of the proverbial window.

Due to small loop holes in the governments planned "help" for businesses and fulough schemes for staff, because of the take-over - even though everything was signed and sealed in time, we have not been able to furlough our staff who have now been home for 6 weeks, nor have we been able to secure the 25K funding that would enable us to weather this storm. 

If we cannot raise the much needed cash, with your help, to save the business from being forced to go into administration, then we are going to have to close our doors and release our staff, some of them who have been with the business before the takeover, for many many years. 

We do not want this to happen and we know that this is a very tough time for everyone. But we also know what the power of compassion and crowdfunding can do to help save people from further hardship.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
