Vegan food stand accident
Scary news out of Croydon.
The traders running vegan street food market Veg Instead had an extremely fortunate escape from serious injury today when a car crashed into their business.
According to London Evening Standard:
An unmarked police car crashed into a south London market stall amid a police chase following an armed robbery this morning.
The black Citroen hit a stallholder and then smashed through a vegan food stand at Surrey Street Market in Croydon just after 9.10am.

As soon as I found out about this accident (thanks Oliver for the tip), I phoned stall owner Greg to check if everyone working this morning was OK. He assured me all was fine as far as physical wellbeing goes, however most of the Veg Instead equipment was destroyed.
This is where the vegan community comes in to help fix this situation.
I have set up a Just Giving page to raise the funds to replace the destroyed equipment. Greg estimates the damage at around £500.

We have the collective power to get Veg Instead back on the road instantly. Insurance claims can take weeks and every day they wait to reopen, Veg Instead are losing income and Croydon is without a vegan food option on its streets.
All we need is 500 people to give £1 and I know more than 500 people will read this story. We can and should use our vegan might to sort this out.
