The friends of Matthews Yard is an unincorporated non-trading body who have come together to provide additional support to Matthews Yard to find viable solutions to the significant challenges which it faces in the weeks and months ahead.
The core aims of the Friends of Matthews Yard are:
1) To nominate the building at 5-9 Surrey Street as an Asset of Community Value
2) To help Matthews Yard secure funding and support to transition from a company limited by shares to a non-profit CIC
3) To help Matthews Yard lobby for financial support and assistance from local and regional government
While the friends of Matthews Yard will promote opportunities to support Matthews Yard financially, it will not collect any funds directly and any donations or other financial transactions will take place between Matthews Yard Croydon Limited and any donor or customer.

New Matthews Yard!
Our new premises in West Croydon opened at the end of August 2020 after delays due to COVID and the premises needing much more work than we anticipated. We managed to raise over £35,000 towards the fitout, but it has cost nearly four times that amount, so we are raising funds to help bridge the gap and cover some of the shortfall. 100% of donations will go to MatthewsYard UK, the non-profit entity which operates the premises. Thank you for your generosity.
