Help our community cafe KindaKafe reopen
Why we need your help
KindaKafe is a much loved community cafe in the heart of Norwich which celebrated its 4th birthday in July. It's part of the Missing Kind charitable network and exists to build communities and reduce loneliness and social isolation in Norwich.
We host a range of community groups, peer support groups and activities throughout the year, often run by dedicated volunteers who share their skills, interests and experiences for the benefit of others.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic KindaKafe Norwich was forced to close its doors in March. Our revenue streams stopped overnight resulting in a loss of at least £55,000 so far.
The Government announced that cafes could reopen from 4 July but we can't reopen without making substantial changes to the layout of our community cafe and kitchen to ensure we can operate safely in accordance with the Government's Covid-secure guidance.
Social distancing requirements will also seriously affect our footfall and currently as a small charity and social enterprise, we receive very little in grant funding and donations and rely heavily on our trading activities to keep us afloat.
We're asking for your help in raising funds to support KindaKafe to reopen so it can continue it's important work in providing much needed support to the community of Norwich.
Help us fight Grenke Leasing
Alongside raising funds to help our community cafe reopen we are also raising funds to help with the potential legal costs of disputing an expensive printer lease that was fraudulently mis-sold to us by a company called Plan Corporate Services. We are now being sued by Grenke Leasing for lease payments totalling over £100k but as you can read here Grenke has recently been accused of facilitating fraud. Instead of pursuing their agent Plan Corporate Services for losses incurred through their fraudulent activities they have chosen to pursue our small charity which could have devastating consequences for our charity and our beneficiaries.
