New stretch target

Any extra money we raise will be used for other monthly outgoings. 

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for  millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive. Together we can help them. 

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 are asking if you could possibly pre pay for your coffees/teas. This way we will be able to keep up with the payments for our amazing coffee machine whilst we have been forced to close. We also are not eligible for any funding from the Givernmemt  Buy as many as you like (minimum donation of £5.00 which entitles you to 2 hot drinks), then when we reopen we will have tokens for you to use so you will be able to come in and claim the drinks you have already paid for.  You will be able to claim your tea, americano, latte or cappuccino when we are back up and running. 

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.
