Local MP Tim Farron has joined with Cumbria Tourism to campaign for more support for our local tourism and hospitality sector.
Tim says, "COVID-19 effectively turned summer into winter for Cumbrian tourism. Ending government funding in October will mean three winters in a row, causing severe hardship on top of the already 312% increase in unemployment locally. That's why we've launched this campaign to ask the Government to extend their support for our local tourism industry."

I/we the undersigned call on the Government to provide a package of financial support for the hospitality and tourism industry to take the sector through to the Spring of 2021.
