Pop Brixton goes out into the community
It’s part of a project by Brixton Pound that funnels Pop Brixton’s business skills and resources out to communities. Each participating business gives an hour of their time per week. It doesn’t sound huge, but adds up to over 2,600 hours of voluntary support per year!

The Brixton Pound
The Brixton Pound (B£) is money that sticks to Brixton. It’s designed to support Brixton businesses and encourage local trade and production. It’s a complementary currency, working alongside (not replacing) pounds sterling, for use by independent local shops and traders. The B£ gives local traders and customers the chance to support each other and maintain the diversity of the high street and strengthen pride in Brixton.
