New stretch target

I will be able to buy a larger cabin which will enable me to have more people working and volunteering in at any one  given time . Possibly two more students working with me each day which would be amazing to be able to support others at a faster pace . I will Also be able to buy a dog bath , grooming tables,blast dryers and take on extra staff member under and apprenticeships scheme 

I’m a massive dog lover and have wanted to open a groomers for over 15 years.
After recently losing my job and having some difficult times In life I’ve decided it’s time to make the dream reality and make a better life for my two beautiful children and myself .
I am trying to open a groomers in my own garden , providing the service from a log cabin. This is what I’m trying to purchase from the crowdfund.
There is a massive demand for groomers in my area and I really do know this will work. I’ve done a lot of research into this and the local groomers have over 8 weeks waiting list.
I’m passionate about giving people a chance in life , be it school leavers , older person returning to work or maybe if someone has gone off on a wrong path and is trying to make things right .
This will be where my groomers will be different as I will be working within my local community eg schools, colleges, council and charities to allow people to gain a qualification . I will also be engaging In mental health organisation and rehabilitation groups.
I am a very hard working person and motivated I just need a little help in making my dream reality and helping not only myself but hopefully many more people within a community.
Thank you in taking the time to read this x

guys I’ve actually lowered my target from £3,000 to £2,000 as I feel it’s more doable between us all and it gives me enough to purchase the cabin . Thank you for helping me with business adventure
