There’s no denying that the spread of COVID-19 will affect our local independent restaurants, bars and cafes. It may have a devastating impact on small independents the coming months. 

Cash flow is a real issue for many small business as this outbreak progresses. There’s a serious chance that the burger place you love so dearly will go under. 

To help support our independents over the next few months, we came up with the Indie Kitty. 

Indie Kitty allows you to enjoy a meal or drink at your favourite restaurant in the future by buying a voucher for it now. These vouchers will help put cash in the tills so these venues keep in business. Wriggle will make no profit from this to ensure as much money gets to these businesses as possible.

So, how does it work?

1. Wrigglers will be able to purchase vouchers ranging from £5 to £40. 

2. This money will go directly to the venues (Wriggle will waive their fees for every voucher bought).

3. Customers will then be able to redeem their vouchers against menu items and drinks after this all passes (depending on the venue)

If you’re an independent business struggling to stay afloat amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, we’re here to help.  If you’re struggling- please sign up here or get in touch via email on [partnerships@getawriggleon.com], through your city manager, or by calling 0117 325 8535. 

We will continue to look for other ways to support our industry as much as we can during this period. In the meantime keep an eye on the latest advice from gov.uk & WHO
