The new funding line will be supported by a further £200,000.00 of equity investment, which the business is in advanced stages of raising, with a leading UK angel network. We expect the £200,000.00 equity to have completed within the next two months.

At the same time, it makes sense for us to appoint a PR agency to promote our brands and business ahead of the planned growth.
