Help Our Family Open Our Business During COVID

We have just taken over a pub (The Blue Ball in Shepshed) and it was left in a difficult condition - mould, grime and a lot of damage! We are working morning and night to get this preloved pub back open to the public, however it requires a full refurbishment and we have not been able to receive any financial help from the government (grant etc) due to the timing of taking on this business.

We are pleading with anybody who is any position to help us open up our dream business. We have struggled a great deal during this COVID period - with both myself and my husband contracting the disease, leaving us unable to work for a period of time. Any help would be hugely appreciated so we can get opened up and start earning a living, as well as provide a great service to our customers.

Any donation, however big or small will be used solely on the renovation of the pub ready to welcome you and your families.

Thank you very much in advance ☺️
