We’ve teamed up with the Local Buyers Club, a discount card promoting independent businesses.
“We know how important independent trade is to the local economy; when you shop locally more of the money you spend makes it back into communities; that in turn creates employment, reduces poverty and isolation. So there’s a great synergy between the projects we fund and the problems the Local Buyers Club has been established to tackle. We’re thrilled to be teaming up, raising funds and making sure people know about the brilliant work happening to make life better locally”, said Anne Phipps, our Director of Development and Communications.
Membership of the Local Buyers Club usually costs £12 per year and members are rewarded with discounts of 10-25% at more than 150 local businesses.
Among the Islington businesses signed up to the Club are Galley, Laki Kane, Little Bat Bar, Planet Organic, Kobo Café, Monsieur Le Duck, The Chapel Bar, Salut, Tootoomoo, Epiczen, Love Brownies, Farang, The Pantry Underwear, Lucky Voice and Bourne’s Fishmongers.
Basil Fansa, founder of the Local Buyers Club, explained: “We’ve long been admirers of Islington Giving and the tremendous difference they make locally, and we’re delighted to be supporting their amazing work. Many of our businesses are determined to help the communities they serve and, in addition to donating a share of our revenue, we’re planning some exciting events and marketing that will both generate business for local traders and promote and fundraise for Islington Giving.”
