Bank of Dave says 'I do' to wedding shop
1:13pm Tuesday 16th October 2012 in News
‘BANK of Dave’ TV star David Fishwick has helped another fledgling local business.
He was at the opening of Crystal Eternity, a new wedding dress shop in Keirby Walk, Burnley, on Saturday, along with former Big Brother contestant Becky Hannon, from Blackburn.
Owner Sarah Mottershead transformed the vacant building following a loan from Dave’s Savings and Loans ‘bank’.
Hit Channel 4 show Bank of Dave sees the van sales boss offering low-interest loans to help small businesses.
He said: “The most important thing is we’re filling up empty shops. The magic for me is watching the boards come off the windows and the shutters roll up.
“Sarah has worked ever so hard to turn the shop around. Myself and David Henshaw, my chief financial officer, get a real kick out of seeing this work.”
