The deadline to apply for a grant of up to £5k is on Wednesday 31st August.

Leicester charity The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity is offering the cash to support businesses within the county.

Following a pilot business grant scheme in 2021, the charity is welcoming applications again to further help businesses recover from the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Whereas its interest-free business loans are to be repaid, these grants of up to £5,000 require no repayment by recipients at all. A total of £50,000 has been allocated by The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity to be delivered in business grants for 2022.
