Crowdfunding campaign launched to save popular community café from closure in Netherfield


A Netherfield cafe that has been called a ‘community hub’ faces closure unless it can pay off debts, reduce costs and find extra cash to revitalise the business.

The local community has now been called upon to help save the Corner Cafe on Victoria Road by donating money via a crowdfunding page.

The crowdfunder has been started by Jessie Grewal and she hopes to raise the necessary funds to save the beloved community hub.

It is hoped that £3,000 can be through fundraising to save the cafe.

On the crowdfunding page, the fundraisers wrote: “We are reaching out to you with heavy hearts and a sense of urgency. Our cherished café, a community hub that has been serving delicious food, creating unforgettable memories, and fostering meaningful connections for years, is facing imminent closure.

“We are devastated by this unfortunate turn of events, and we desperately need your support to keep our doors open.

“Due to a series of unforeseen circumstances, including rising operational costs, mounting debts, and a significant decrease in foot traffic, we are no longer able to sustain the café’s daily operations. Our dedicated staff members, who have become like family to us, are also at risk of losing their livelihoods. It breaks our hearts to imagine a future without our café, and we are determined to do everything in our power to save it.

“With your generous contributions, we aim to raise the necessary funds to cover outstanding debts, reduce operating costs, and implement a strategic plan that will help us revive our café and ensure its long-term sustainability.

“Your support means the world to us. By donating to our cause, you are not only helping to save a beloved café but also preserving a vital community space.

They added: “Your contribution will directly impact the lives of our dedicated staff members, who rely on this café for their livelihoods, and the countless individuals who call this place their second home.”
