The Good Weigh - Zero Waste store in Lady Bay
We did it
On 3rd July 2019 we successfully raised £10,150 with 173 supporters in 59 days

To help my local community shop with as little impact on the environment as possible, keeping single use plastic consumption to a minimum.

Overwhelming community reaction :)

Hi everyone

I know I have messaged you all individually, but I just wanted to update you all, especially the people who pledged early, well last week!

The Good Weigh has had such an amazing response from the community and I am so excited by the prospect of the store becoming a reality. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who is as excited as me by this project.

We are over half way there now and I feel like the project is really gaining momentum now! It's really key that everyone spreads the word and I am working really hard alongside my day job that is due to finish soon - I work for a Rugby brand in marketing and rugby world cup is on the horizon so I might have to stick around for a little longer and do a bit of both but I'm trying hard to do a good job for The Good Weigh and for Canterbury.  We are looking at a late July opening.

If we can pull this one off it's going to be so great for the community and we can all be proud that we are doing something wonderful collectively for the planet.  Every little step can go a long way to make a difference and I really believe that.

We've had some great coverage in the local news today so hopefully The Good Weigh word is getting around and we can be confident that things are looking really positive for the store.

Thank you all again from the bottom of my heart, forever and ever grateful, Kate x
