The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses.

by Christopher in Bynea, Wales, United Kingdom

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive. 

Crowdfunder are offering up their platform to allow all UK small businesses to pre-sell bookings etc. for cash now on a promise to redeem these at a later date.

As a small family run business that has been operating through generations since 1975 we are going through an unprecedented and challenging time to try and keep and reopen the business in the foreseeable future. 

Berwick Boarding Kennels cares for family dogs while people have holidays, go to work, meetings away, medical appointments, family births and bereavement etc or to use our general grooming services. Since the lockdown and with the pause on flights abroad the large majority of our customers will now be unable to travel and this will have a devistating outcome on us as a business.

We have recently expanded to keep up with customer demand as we have always been a popular establishment as our care for the dogs that stay with us is second to none. With all the over heads we now face from this expansion and with the number of staff that we now employ due to the expansion, with the added expenses of contractual agreements with suppliers we are now facing a very challenging time as a business from this meeting our financial demands.

Our staff are eager to get back to work however it has recently been shown that coronavirus can be passed on through the dogs as it is able to travel on the body of a dog on their coats.

We are looking at possible ways to reopen the business with new safety measures in place however it would be very challenging for us to achieve this and would certainly be putting our staff and customers in jeprodiy and we are simply trying to abide by the government advice to remain closed to allow down the spread of the virus so that this is over sooner than later.

Hopefully you'll see us & our staff caring for your dogs soon! Let us know if we can help you in the meantime.

Take care & stay safe, Cheers.
