We’re raising funds to help those in more need than us during the coronavirus outbreak. Funds will go not only to help us be sure we can reopen when it's safe to do so but also to help us use our time and resources to help others.
As of the 17th March we have had to temporarily close the doors to the public at Sheaf St - a cafe, bar and event space (www.sheafst.com) This has put a great deal of strain on our business but things are much more concerning for others in even more tricky scenarios.
We’re going for a double whammy on Fundraising here - 50% of funds will go to help those in more need than us during the virus outbreak. The other 50% will go to help us to keep Sheaf St going while we have no customers
Money raised will be spent equally:
- Supporting Leeds South and East foodbank in vital donations
- Creating a swiftly accessible freelancers support fund for creatives, artists and musicians in need due to work cancellations or lack of government support
- Help keep Sheaf St running and enable us to re-purpose staff time to help others
We have set up this fund in the hope that people who normally would come down to eat, drink and play with us, might be in a position to want to chip in and get involved.
Those at Sheaf St and the wider community that we help will be eternally grateful for any support you can give no matter how small.
As always we are endeavouring to follow our motto - Work Hard and Be Nice to People - Help us to Help Others
