SOUTH Lakeland District Council (SLDC) are reminding businesses that there is still time to apply for Covid-19 funding.

The deadline to apply for a Restart Grant is approaching.

The Restart Grant is a one-off business grant available to non-essential retail businesses, and hospitality, accommodation, leisure, personal care and gym or sport business premises to help with recovery from the Coronavirus pandemic.

A spokesman for SLDC said: "Businesses, have you applied for a Restart Grant yet? So far we have paid out more than £17m to 2,094 businesses but there are still many more who have yet to apply. These are grants, not loans, of up to £18,000. Don't miss the 30 June deadline."
