Reach director Jim Brinkley said: “During these difficult times we know that our local businesses will be among the most affected. They are the life-blood of our towns and cities, both as service providers and employers, and we want to do all we can to support them at this time.

“Our promise is that we’ll continue to support the UK’s local businesses now, throughout and beyond the COVID-19 crisis, and to keep the backbone of the British economy going.”
