Description

GOTA National Crowdfunding Training

Launched from a packed committee room at Parliament in June last year the Guardians of the Arches campaign won the backing of 20 parliamentarians from across the political spectrum including Lord John Bird, Jeremy Corbyn MP and Zac Goldsmith MP.

This tenant led initiative captured the imagination of the British public featuring in The Mirror, Sky News, BBC News, ITV News, BBC 5 Live, BBC Radio London, The Guardian, The Times, The Independent, The Big Issue and The Evening Standard amassing 10,000 signatures to a letter hand-delivered to Transport Secretary Chris Grayling.

The ‘tenants first’ approach from the new landlord The Arch Co is a direct result of these actions.

Building on this excellent track record, now we invite arches tenants everywhere to help build the biggest commercial tenants association the UK has ever seen for a powerful and sustainable voice.

Time and place:

Saturday 27th April 1.30pm to 4.30pm.
Optional tenants social from 5pm to 8pm for fellowship, food and drink. Halal, vegan and vegetarian options available. Our London Vodka, Arch 435 & 436, Spurstowe Rd, London, E8 1LS.
Our London Vodka is a 5 minute walk from Hackney Downs station (wheelchair accessible).
Trains from Liverpool Street Station depart every 10 minutes.

Training overview:
