Hey,  as the place that has been a part of so many fundraisers and community events over the years, it's weird to post this, but CTO could use a little help.
The last couple of years have been tough; live music is of course unpredictable at best, and the last two winters have really taken a toll on this almost 150 year old building.
Having to put a new roof on (and then seeing much of it blow off in 60 mph winds) furnace issues, bursting pipes during two of the coldest winters we can remember, exploding water heaters and a myriad of other small things that naturally have come at the least convenient times. Add to that absurd property taxes and ever increasing utility bills, and a recent round of frivolous but expensive legal activities, have left us in a bit of a tight spot. Any one of these on it's own is no big deal but when they come in rapid succession it does add up.
We are dedicated to our support of original live music and helping to showcase the best available bands as well as provide a stage for new and local area bands to develop. That's what we've always done, through thick and thin.
We are trying to raise some funds to cover some of the expenses that have been building up (pay some bills!) , with the hope that we might also be able to show a little TLC to this historic building, like fixing the floors / doors, or maybe replacing the original windows with something more energy efficient. There are a multitude of tiny repairs that require our attention.
If you are in a position to make a donation, we'd be grateful for your help.
Of course, we'd be just as happy to see you stop by for a drink, some pinball, and to catch your favorite live band.

Hey, thank you all for your support, and it's been great to see some familiar faces stop in at the bar to chat, have a drink, watch some bands. We managed to pay off a couple of outstanding utility bills and we've just finished installing new doors at the patio and back. These replace the 25 year old doors and their rusty frames. Increases our security (we did get broken into last week) and should help with keeping the building comfortable once colder weather gets here.
And we couldn't have done it without your help!

Frankly overwhelmed by the response from everbody. I see a lot of familiar names in the list of supporters and it's so wonderful to hear from people who are part of the CTO story, whether you played here in a band, came to shows, or hung out here during your brief time in London.
More later, but just wanted to jump on and say THANK YOU!
