We are very sorry to have to be asking this but we are putting out a call of help to all of you who know and love our little Riverside Cafe. Storm Callum hit us with full force and has totally destroyed and devastated our little business we have been building this past year and a half. 
For those of you who know us you know it had been mine and my cousin Karunas dream to own and run a vege/vegan cafe together our whole lives. To finally fulfil this dream after planning,saving and fundraising a year and a half ago,only to have it ripped away from under us in one foul swoop in one day is devastating to say the least. 
We have lost a massive portion of our equipment inside and outside and need to replace around 90% of everything we own and need to run the business down to be river rising so high and destroying and contaminating it all inside and sweeping any outside benches etc away. Alot of our food and drink stock is also ruined and will need replacing.
On top of replacing all the equipment and food etc we will need to have all the electrics checked and possibly redone, we will also need to get a proffesional cleaning team in to decontaminate the whole place of the river water and any bacteria it may hold and make it fit for business again, plus redecorate inside and out.
We are a small business and as many of you know this is enough to destroy us as we do not have the funds to cover all these costs ourselves by any means so are calling on anyone who knows and loves us and our cafe to help chip in any amount they can afford to try and get us back on our feet again.
We will be shut for the foreseeable future and struggling to meet the bills as it is so need to try and bounce back from this as quick as we can and replace it all so we can re open and hopefully be back to the little happy relaxed place you know and love. 
Love to all and we thank everyone for any donation however small that will help us survive this  ❤
***Edit*** I have raised the amount needed as think 5000 was a bit optimistic of me, after being here and doing the clear up more and more stuff is arising and have realised the equipment we thought we could salvage we can't. We are having to totally refit and start afresh with everything and 5000 was a bit hopeful for a whole business. We have had so much support from everyone and are overwhelmed by the kind words and thoughts and feeling positive now that we can bounce back from this!!! ❤❤❤❤
