Jan 5, 2021 | Leisure & Lifestyle

Chancellor Rishi Sunak has today (Tuesday) announced a £4.6bn of support for companies affected by last night’s national lockdown announcement made by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Leisure and retail venues can access up to £9,000 per business, depending on the criteria they meet, while further discretionary grants will be available to access via local authorities nationwide.

The third national lockdown to be imposed on the country, in response to rapidly rising coronavirus cases and deaths, is expect to be in place until at least the middle of February, with all schools also closed.
