Support grants for the wedding sector, which are topped up with additional funds

Wedding businesses in Helensburgh and Lomond can apply for grants of up to £ 25,000 to help cope with the downturn caused by the pandemic.

The Scottish government announced a £ 15 million fund in December to support the wedding sector and its supply chain. Last week it was announced that an additional £ 10 million had been added to the total pot.

The expanded fund was launched on Thursday.

In the Helensburgh area, the fund is managed by Scottish Enterprise.
