The Pipeline has been around since 2009 and has provided an alternative space, mainly for alternative music. We are one of the few proper rock bars left in the UK.
We closed our doors this Monday, 16th March. No one asked us to close but it felt the right thing to do considering this pandemic. Waiting for the Prime Minister to take responsible decisions could take too long time for some vulnerable people. Better to help containing the virus rather that just wait and see.
The money we can accumulate with this crowd funder is going directly to all staff and shared equally, no matter how many hours they work/worked. This is not going to make a big difference for them but everything helps and hopefully they get other sources of help until Pipeline reopens. The company been making a loss the last 3 years but this crowd funder will NOT go to Pipeline but to Pipeline staff. Any small donation and/or sharing this cause will be highly appreciated.
The staff is very much the heart of any establishment and it really hurts to no being able to pay them salaries during the closure. Love you all and STAY SAFE!
