Picture story: tasty homemade burgers brought to you straight from the Lake District

Michelle Partington has been running Lakeland Picnic since 2007, making homemade burgers and sausages from their base in the Lake District. The business was looking to raise finance so they could revamp the look of their street stalls.

In September, Lakeland Picnic took out a business loan through Funding Circle which was funded by 221 people across the UK, alongside the UK Government.

We went up to visit Michelle in the Lake District to see how her and the team create their magical meat and then followed her to their stall in Manchester’s Piccadilly Gardens, where she had some lovely words to say about everyone who had lent them money.
