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.
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.
To spread awareness of the support the Sir Thomas White Loan Charity can offer, trustee David Howard will be attending a networking session at Phoenix Square followed by a visit to LCB Depot, on Wednesday 30 March.
Firstly, he will be at Creative Coffee from 10:00am to 12:00pm, to speak to any entrepreneurs in attendance that might be able to benefit from a business loan from the Charity.
