Raising funds to ensure the opening of a plastic free shop in Rawtenstall

by Mrs Leigh Holmes in Rossendale, England, United Kingdom

Who is behind Planet B?

Hi, I’m Leigh and I will be opening the new single use plastic alternative store in Rawtenstall, Planet B!

I’m also known as LilRockit, a DJ based in Crawshawbooth that is set out to make a difference.

Already I am an ambassador for ACS Custom and Plug Em who spread the word about, and, promotes safe hearing and the importance of protecting your ears from tinnitus in festival and club environment.

I founded and run a charity with my family Purple Heart Wishes which grants wishes for adults over the age of 18 all across the UK.

I love to promote female equality in the music industry especially when it comes to being a DJ.

And I am now about to embark on my 4th venture of making a difference with something I have been wanting to do for the last year - open a plastic free shop.

My personal plastic free journey started last year and it’s become even more needed after a shocking experience in America. I was given the opportunity to get some work experience with the wonderful One Small Step in Altrincham between festivals and shows which helped to confirm my idea of opening a shop in my local town to help others have the option of shopping plastic free.

Why do I need to Crowdfund?

There are just a couple of simple reasons why I need your help crowdfunding:

  • To help towards the purchase of a good quality set of scales - to ensure that customers are able to have an enjoyable and smooth experience whilst in store.
  • To help lower any initial startup costs and release pressure on loan repayments - with small businesses struggling to stay open due to the rising costs of wholesale products, services and rents, this would help towards ensuring Planet B remains open to the local community.

That’s it! I’m not a greedy person, and I’m only asking for the help that I need help with, nothing more.

As a DJ, you have the option to make a difference with all of the exposure you can give, so why wouldn’t I take the opportunity to make a change and help the planet?

I look forward to making the change with you all, and I thank you for your support in this journey
