No matter where you are in the county of Leicestershire, you’re never too far from the welcoming arms of a Steamin’ Billy pub.
Many enjoy the relaxed surroundings of The Parcel Yard after a train journey into the city, whilst others savour locally-sourced ingredients from seasonal menus at the company’s food establishments; all of which serve a unique selection of iconic Steamin’ Billy ales.
Put simply, if you’ve never been to a Steamin’ Billy pub, you’re likely to have heard of one; which is a true testament to the colossal profile the company now has across the county.
Before we proudly explain how The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity influenced a chapter of this incredible story, we’ll take you back to before the turn of the century through the eyes of Billy Allingham (pictured), who alongside Barry Lount, is co-founder of the Steamin’ Billy brand.
The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity is delighted to announce that a total of £89,000 has been approved in interest-free loans to people throughout Leicestershire and Rutland.
Based at Friars Mill in the heart of Leicester city centre, The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity provides loans of up to £20,000 to new and developing businesses within the county, in addition to loans of up to £10,000 to individuals wishing to study for postgraduate qualifications.
In today’s digital age, where so much time is spent online, the importance of a strong, digital presence is key to the success of any business. For many companies, online marketing is placed at the top of the priority list.
That’s part of the reason why, after receiving an interest-free business loan from The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity, Leicester-based digital marketing agency Anuncia has developed into a successful, fast-growing business with an extensive client portfolio.
The specialist PPC (pay-per-click) agency helps businesses to achieve impactful digital marketing results, in addition to ensuring small and mid-sized UK charities benefit from Google’s Ad Grant, as Founder Oscar Ford explains further.
Sat on Rio de Janeiro’s beautiful Copacabana beach during a gap year in South America, whilst taking in the stunning scenery that southern Brazil has to offer, James Wormington couldn’t help but think how magical experiences like these are often better when shared.
With that thought came an idea; a brainwave which not only grew legs, but began running, taking James on another adventure: into the world of business.
With a detailed plan in place and funding secured from The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity’s interest-free business loan, which is available to the value of £20,000, James was able to establish Travamigos – an app that allows solo travellers to connect with groups of likeminded adventurers heading for the same destination; making travel simple, safe and enjoyable for all.
