A week ago a fire blazed through the storage units at Brixton Market, resulting in a huge loss of stock. Not only has this had the immediate financial impact of the damage of the stock, but it is continuing to cause traders issues. Many have had to shut up shop as they simply have nothing to put on the shelves, resulting in even more economic losses.

Many of the traders are really struggling- they have families to provide for and bills to pay. Especially in the current cost of living crisis, not working simply isn’t an option. In response to this, ‘Save Nour’ has set up a fundraiser. Here’s what they’ve said about it: “The money raised will help traders with their rent, bills and living costs and to replace their stock so they can get back on their feet again.”

The initial goal of the fundraiser was to raise £20,000, a sum that has been quickly surpassed in the 3 days the campaign has been running- a huge credit to the power of the Brixton community and a clear indication of how important these market shops and stalls are to us. As is said so eloquently on the page; solidarity and support is the main resource these traders have to rely on right now. If you can donate know that it really will make a difference.
