You can see a full list of the businesses and private citizens who back LAB at https://lab.yourderry.co/our-members/
Over the last 12 months, we’ve been able to support local projects and initiatives with almost £20,000 to grow their business, all supported by those wonderful folks mentioned above.
Winners this year have included; Catchy Co, Foyle Foot & Ankle Clinic, Offing Coffee, Koto Candles, My Pet Lamb, K-Dence Apparel, Ferry Clever, B&CO Care, Pigs Ear Events & Styling, Reevah, Bennigan’s Film Club, Derry Footage, Con Eire, Ethan Diver and The Young Artiste.
We were also delighted to see the launch of The AMP Growth Incubator in Ebrington Square which has been led by some of the team behind The LAB Fund. Due to this synergy, we were able to secure 3 month’s of free office space for Catchy Co (better known as TikTok star Mammy Banter)
None of this would be possible without the continued support of the businesses and people in and around our city. We know that times are hard for many people, but if you are in a position to to contribute each month (as a business or private citizen) we would love to have you join The LAB Fund. Sign up here!
Many thanks & Merry Christmas
