My idea is...
I started my toy shop business in May 2010 with a small amount of self funded money. It was a dream I fulfilled after believing it could never happen to me after having a car accident and breaking my spine when I was 17. After a long fight back to health, getting married and having a family, I set up in a tiny shop in the back streets of Ampthill in a recession. I was told I was mad… but I made it work.
Within 4 months I found the need to move to larger premises in the town centre.
Here now, I’m about to enter my 2nd year of trading and I’m looking at expanding yet again.
I have to opportunity to buy my current shop with added space to open a parent/toddler drop in centre during the week which will be non profit making, and at weekend offering a party venue for small groups. The cost of setting up this venture is quite a lot and It would be amazing if I can get £300 to help pay for the Planning/equipment costs.
Thank you for your support.
