I don't like to beg, no-one does. But COVID-19 has hit my business in a way that I'd never considered, with very few events happening anywhere in the world at the moment. You may or may not know that R&R is a one-man-band (this is me), not a nameless (faceless!) corporation. I work long hours to keep the site up to date and running smoothly, everything you see is the result of my work and my work alone!
Like many outdoor-based businesses, every year October to March is a quiet time where my income drops massively, but normally the April boom saves me... not this year!
R&R does not make a lot of money at the best of times, and this... well, this is not the best of times!
Your donation would be hugely appreciated, even small amounts add up and make a difference.
How can I make a donation?
PayPal make this process very simple; you don't even need an account these days. Click the button above to make a donation - any amount. All major debit/credit cards are accepted.
Hold on though, don't you qualify for the government grants?
Absolutely, but they're not close to covering the income gap. Worse, while they started at 80% and 70%, from November onwards it only covers 20% of profits (not even of turnover), and as such still leaves me heavily out of pocket.
But, er, my income has been hit as well...
Obviously only donate if you feel financially able to. Some businesses are booming, some are unaffected. If you've lost your income or, worse, your job, then you have my utmost sympathies and please don't donate!
Lastly... thank you!
You can also support by simply clicking this banner before making a purcahse on Amazon.co.uk. It'll make no difference to the price you pay, but means that R&R will get a small percentage of the amount you spend. THANK YOU!
