SGF Launches New COVID-19 Retailer Support Fund, with support of key suppliers

The SGF Retailer Support Fund has now been established to provide direct financial assistance to retailers and their families affected financially by COVID-19. The creation of the fund has been made possible by an initial – and very significant – contribution by key SGF partner Camelot. The Fund has now been given additional and very welcome contributions from key SGF members Bobby’s Foods, Hancocks, Shoply, Tunnocks and Towergate Insurance.

To apply for this funding, applications should be made via the SGF Benevolent Fund; our Trustees will scrutinise the applications in the same way as they would any other application.  We will endeavour to offer funds within 10 days of receipt of the application as we understand how difficult times are in the current climate.

Application forms can be downloaded here.
