Covid-19 'Bounce back fund'

by The Inn at Loch Tummel in Strathtummel, Scotland, United Kingdom

We did it
On 8th June 2020 we successfully raised £36,575 with 147 supporters in 37 days

To ensure a smooth 'bounce back' once we are allowed to re open and take on the additional staff necessary to hit the ground running.

New stretch target

The extra funding will go towards helping us make sure the Inn can adapt to the changing hospitality industry, post covid-19. 

Conference facilities and private hire are both things that we feel will be even more sought after post lockdown. We need to ensure we have the right equipment and infrastructure in place to allow us to be at the forefront of these things. 


INTRO:

We have thought long and hard about whether or not to share this and have ultimately decided that turning outwards to you all is far more positive than focusing inwards.

PROBLEM:

As we have all discovered Covid-19 is causing very real problems and concerns for both individuals and businesses of all sizes. Here at the Inn we are certainly not immune to these problems and concerns.

The grants, along with the furlough scheme the government have made available, have been invaluable in keeping our staff and paying off our suppliers, however, moving on is undoubtedly going to be a trickier issue.  

There are government backed  loans available but our concern is that these are just adding to our debt and will of course need to be repaid upon re opening, putting further pressure on a very delicate position.

SOLUTION:

Instead, we have a proposition for yourselves; our kind and generous family/friends/guests - both new and returning. We would like to ask you guys to help see us through this  difficult time. Whatever you are able to spare will go towards a monetary voucher here at the Inn.

Obviously, we don’t expect you to do this for nothing and so we will add an extra 20% on whatever you are able to contribute.

Our reasoning behind coming to you is two fold. We are very aware that on reopening...whenever that might be!?; re building up our bookings could be slow and not conducive to ‘hitting the ground running’, therefore already having the promise of visits from yourselves will help boost that slow up take period.

Secondly, we feel far more comfortable owing your good selves than the bank!

Adding 20% to the value of whatever you can give is only right as you will have played a direct part in keeping this wonderful Inn alive!

OUR PLEDGE: 

For every £1000 raised we will donate a 3 course meal for 2 to a key worker. If you would like to nominate someone, all you need to do is send us a private message on facebook or instagram. We will put a shout out on both these platforms to announce when we hit the targets.  

All you need to include is the name of the person you are nominating, what they do, and a contact email address for them.

Love
Jade and Alice
