Fund 2015: Recipient Updates – Samosa Shack


This March we launched our first ever funding scheme with a pot of £15,000 that was shared between nine projects from Levenshulme residents who were chomping at the bit to do something new that coincided with our social aims – exploring new ideas for our high street or creating or growing their own retail enterprises. All our winners have now received their funding and have been beavering away getting their projects off the ground over the last six months and have agreed to share their progress with us…and you! So over the last few weeks we have been sharing updates from each of our winning projects on what they have been up to since March and how they have spent their funding so far.

Our next update comes from Kamini Patel who used her funding to develop Samosa Shack – an artisan food stall where she sells Gujarati cuisine – she gave us this update:

Samosa Shack traded for the first time at Levy Market on Saturday 8th August. In the last 6 months we have been working by day and prepping handmade  Samosas by night. The award has helped us to purchase the correct equipment needed to trade safely and efficiently on the market, the funding has also allowed us to create and develop the design of our stall. We wanted to give Samosa Shack an authentic look by using earthy and rustic colours to reflect the ingredients we put into our Samosas. Since trading at Levy Market we have received brilliant feedback from family, friends and the community, we would like to thank Levenshulme Market Fund and everyone who came along to sample and buy samosas from us on our first day trading. We are also in the process of developing new and exciting fillings and pastries to expand our product range so watch this space!
