Trying to think of something to get your Dad this Father’s Day? Instead of giving him another pair of socks or a coffee mug, we have come up with a variety of ideas for all the different Dads out there. All these businesses have been able to flourish thanks to your lending.
Does your Dad love being outdoors? How about organising a short trip away to the rural village of Alves in Northern Scotland? Here you’ll find North Alves Holiday Park. The company is run by a passionate couple who have come up with their very own unique style of “glamping”. When visiting this park you have the opportunity to stay in a SKARA central-BBQ cabin, which allows you to enjoy the pleasure of socialising and cooking at the same time. In order to continue to cater for the ever-growing needs of their customers, the company borrowed £31,000 on two separate occasions in 2017 and 2018.
Does your Dad reckon himself as a bit of an angler? If so head down to Top Tackle for his Father’s Day supplies this year. These guys offer a range of fishing tackle and other accessories. They deal with a number of major fishing tackle manufacturers, such as Korda and Preston Innovations. The company borrowed £5,000 at the beginning of the year. This funding helped to introduce even further ranges to their online portal and renovate their store in central Oxford.
Get the flares out of the cupboard and break out the Dad dancing with at Razza Roller Disco! Razza was created by dance champion Gary Newley in 2012 with the purpose to deliver an incredible customer service for all. You can also book a skating lesson at Razza Skate Academy. The company was able to expand into other areas of the country after they borrowed £47,000.00 at the beginning of 2018, purchasing new DJ gear, safety equipment and uniforms.
Is your Dad more into adrenaline action? Check out Inspire Shows, who provide unforgettable extreme sports performances. You may recognise their team of highly skilled stunt individuals from the popular TV show “Don’t Tell the Bride”, where they conducted the world’s first ever extreme sports wedding. Thanks to your lending, the company purchased more stunt ramps for their nail-biting shows, enabling them to host multiple bookings on the same day.
Finally, if your Dad is needing some R&R then you could always spoil him rotten with a gift set from Debonair Male and Fitness Grooming. Whether it’s their Deluxe Beard Oil Gift Box or Daily Shampoo Moisturising Conditioner Set, this luxury British brand provides a range of high-quality products with an innovative approach. Their aim is to make men of all ages and backgrounds feel good about themselves. The company was able to purchase new salon equipment after borrowing £13,000 at the beginning of 2018.
