An important change to our Patreon

Our community pantry and community cafe events have become very important services locally since the start of the pandemic. We anticipate that, with the end of the furlough scheme, drop in Universal Credit and rising prices of energy, fuel and food, our community are going to need these services more than ever over the coming year.

We are lucky to currently have 46 Patreon supporters, as well as regular supporters via PayPal and direct to our bank account. We have made the decision to focus all of our Patreon fundraising on keeping the pantry and community cafe events financially viable.

Each level has the same rewards – in keeping with our values of making what we do as accessible as possible – and each level directly supports the pantry in very tangible ways.

If you are a supporter, you do not need to do anything, your regular amount remains the same!


We are introducing access to our live music events online for all Patreon supporters and those who support with regular payments through other channels and will be adding other benefits as time goes on, as well as keeping you updated with Patreon-only posts, videos and lives in our private patrons Facebook group. Whatever amount you give each month, you will have this access.

The levels of support start at £2.50 per month, with amounts to suit all budgets.

We know that regular amounts can be difficult for many to commit to, so our pay-it-forward ‘shop’ will remain active for folks to make one-off donations when they can, too. There are lots of other ways to support and donate, too.
