Just Darling Staff-Covid19

Personal message

My name is Abigail Dow and my management team and I are wanting to raise funds for our INCREDIBLE staff as they endure the COVID19 Lockdown.

After the President's first address on Sunday 14th March –  people were urged to stay away from public places and practice social distancing. As a result, our shop trade dropped by 55% in the first 2 weeks before lockdown. This continued until the national lockdown, in which our business was then forced to stop ALL trade for the whole of April 2020. We have had absolutely no trade in this time. We managed to recover enough money to pay our staff salaries at the end of March, but with no trade taking place, we simply do not have the available funds to cover salaries for April.

We have applied for the relevant government funding and submitted the UIF claims on behalf of all of our staff but we are unsure if these applications will be paid out in time or if at all. Additionally, the UIF Relief Scheme- if successful will only pay out between 38%-60% of our employees earnings, depending on the individual.

Our heart is breaking that we are unable to pay our employees during this time- if we had any means to do so- we would. This is why the donations we receive will not go towards management salaries or suppliers, but solely to fund the families of the Just Darling kitchen, bar and waitering staff.

Reaching this target will ensure our staff get paid timeously and are able to provide for their families in this incredibly difficult time.

Any little bit helps and whatever we raise will go a long way to keeping these families fed and feel supported by the community they have served so lovingly over the last 5 years.
