    Story

    Borough Market and the Bankside community have established a trader support fund to help those individuals and businesses who have suffered financial hardship and losses as a result of the temporary closure of the Borough Market area, and have no other means of support. The fund has been set up by the Borough Market Trust, United St Saviours Charity and Better Bankside.

    The Market and the immediate surrounds have remained closed since the attacks of 3rd June, while the police investigation takes place. This has taken its toll on individuals and businesses with no other means of income.

    The Chair of the Borough Market Trust, Donald Hyslop, commented, “An atrocity of this magnitude has many hidden victims. Among these are the independent traders and producers who rely upon Borough Market for their livelihood. With the market still closed and with valuable stock lost, some of these traders—although none would be quick to admit it—are struggling.”

    He continued: “If any of these traders, whose skill and dedication make the market such a wonderful asset, were to find the viability of their work threatened by this act of violence, the result would be to add a sad injustice to a terrible tragedy. The Borough Market Trust, some of wider Bankside community, and the market’s larger businesses have joined together to establish a hardship fund for those traders who are suffering most in these uncertain times. Anyone who wishes to support this fund will find their generosity gratefully received. There was never any doubt in my mind that the Market’s community would pull together in a crisis, but it is nonetheless humbling to see that solidarity in action."

      To say thank you doesn’t seem quite sufficient – but, on behalf of all Borough Market traders and the surrounding businesses, a huge and heartfelt thank you to each and everyone of you. The first distributions from the fund have already been made, to 60 small businesses most in need of urgent financial assistance. (2/3)
