This has been a very distressing week for everyone involved with Borough Market and the terrorist attack has had a serious impact on the running of the Market. Graham Wilson has kept in touch with Darren Henaghan (Managing Director of Borough Market) and Darren has asked for the letter below to be circulated to NABMA members. If you are able to help please do so.
“Thank you so much to all of our NABMA friends who have sent myself and Donald messages of support. We are sorry we haven’t been able to reply to everyone. As you can imagine we have been a bit busy.
On Saturday night the unimaginable happened. A food market, which stands for so much positivity, community and love was the focus of hate. Our thoughts are all with the victims of that senseless violence that affected people from all over the world.
The market has now been closed for a week. The traders, although they would never admit it are struggling.
Please see this press release (Borough Market Traders Fund) that says it better than I can, but in short we have set up an appeal to support our traders that can be accessed here: https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/bmrelieffund
I hope you will be able to support this and show the world how markets come together at a time of need to support our traders.”
