My name is Philip Scotton age 54, I've worked hard all my life and currently employed in the NHS. My wife Jenny aged 52 took early retirement in 2016 after 29 years in the NHS as a Qualified Nurse, Public Health and Primary Care manager.Due to past spinal surgery from lifting patients etc, Jenny retired.... for a well earned rest!
We got married in 2017 and embarked on a new adventure. On honeymoon,we fell in love with Paxos, a small, idyllic Greek Island next to Corfu and decided to start an exciting business project together, back in the UK.
It has been a rollercoaster journey thus far.... to say the least, blood sweat and lots of tears!
Our goal is to run a UK start up business that is a new build holiday villa, on the stunningly beautiful Island of Paxos, Greece. Our business offers holiday makers a unique experience ….like no other, offering Yoga retreats and cooking holidays.
We are looking for anyone that can help us out financially with our start up business. We have approached banks and other financial lending platforms and have now become increasingly anxious and stressed at getting nowhere..... Brexit has not enabled us and we've approached all our family and friends. We cant believe that we have got so far …..and thought we would be able to raise the money ourselves.
To date we have invested everything we have and own, including selling our house, car, using our pension and savings, totalling £400,000. We are trying to raise £70,000.
This is not easy... to ask for donations, as we are humble hard working people ….. but we don't want to lose our business before its even begins. We are human and acknowledge we have made mistakes...…
This is a genuine plea to enable us to get our business up and running in June/ July 2019. Now we need financial help ! We already have people who want to book the villa! You will understand why when you scroll across and see the photos!
