Business Expansion for Abacus Mountain Guides

07 October 2015

Abacus Mountain Guides have received an award of £7,710 to support their plans to expand their operation and employ an additional member of staff.

The funding was received from the LMM Business Enterprise Trust who provide one – off grants to businesses in North West Scotland to support sustainable local businesses and improve employment opportunities.

Abacus Mountain Guides provide world class adventures on the West Coast of Scotland, creating tailor made trips based on weather and condition, previous experience and aspirations.

It is hoped that once the new member of staff has gone through their training and qualified as a summer and mountain leader they will be able to lead activities, generating additional income from the company.

Mike Pescod, Director Abacus Mountain Guides said, “It is with great thanks that I received the LMM Business Enterprise Trust Grant and huge excitement for what we will be able to do with it for our business, Abacus Mountain Guides. Like many people running small businesses I found I was spending all my time "in" the business meaning I had no time to spend "on" the business.

“This grant from the LMM Business Enterprise Trust will allow me to hire a part time member of staff to run the business, giving me the opportunity to work on expanding our product range and reaching out to new customers. I will make sure this will allow us to expand Abacus Mountain Guides so we can maintain extra staff permanently.”

If you are a business in North West Scotland, looking to start up, expand or diversify and can demonstrate the benefit you could make to the local community, you can apply to the fund prior to the closing date of 13 November.
