CHARITY

We are committed to our core values & beliefs

We always strive to put people first and treasure our local communities. To do this, we and some of our traders have partnered with a handful of charities and non-for-profit organisations. 

SVG Relief & Zander Venezia Trust

Tru Barbados

Female Bajan entrepreneur and founder of Tru Barbados, Emilee, commits to making a donation each month to a cause that is close to her heart, whether it’s to help animals or the Zander Venezia Trust – a charity in Barbados that focuses on helping children from disadvantaged backgrounds. This foundation is in the name of Emilee’s friend who died a few years ago – now his parents run the charity, having achieved some amazing things for the kids in Barbados. Being from Barbados, Emilee is passionate about playing her part to give back to her home Island.

The Athenian

Our Greek street food traders at The Athenian kindly donated 2,500 free meals to NHS workers once the pandemic hit the UK. They wanted to show their appreciation to the people that work extremely hard around the clock to save lives, so they also offered a 50% discount to all NHS staff (this has now expired), either over the counter or via delivery with their partner City Pantry.

Go Fund Me

Mama Jacq's

Our Bajan street food traders at Mama Jacqs launched a fundraiser in April 2021 as part of their mission to raise £10,000 to provide food and essentials items to individuals and families that suffered from the eruption of the long-dormant La Soufriere Volcano on the tiny island of St. Vincent. The team at Mama Jacqs were born in St Vincent and felt devastated about the disaster, so in aid, they sent 20+ containers of supplies for the people of the Island and BOXPARK also donated funds to help spread awareness of the Go Fund Me campaign.

Evolve Housing + Support

BOXPARK Croydon

BOXPARK Croydon partnered with Evolve Housing + Support and Croydon BID to host ‘Sleep Out 2020’. The event involved people giving up their cosy beds and swapping it for a cold concrete floor to help raise funds for the homeless. Participants actively raised awareness of the homelessness crisis in Croydon and raised funds to help homeless people rebuild their lives and gain independence. Evolve is a leading homelessness charity in London, providing housing and support to over 2,000 people each year. Their mission is to help children, young people and adults who are homeless or at risk of homelessness reach their potential, and move on to live happy, fulfilled lives.
