The Tourism sector in Scotland has been dealt a devastating blow with the Covid19 lockdown restrictions to movement. Many in the business have used this time to use their skills to support front line workers.
The national tourism body VisitScotland has produced a short film highlighting the work of these businesses throughout Scotland and to thank them for the work they are doing to support others since the Covid-19 outbreak hit.
The short film shows those who have gone out of their way to help their local communities, care workers and others despite the challenges they are facing themselves. Many businesses have been forced to close their doors due to the pandemic but have diverted skills and resources to support those most in need.
VisitScotland invites businesses to share their activity on social media, tagging @visitscotnews.
Malcolm Roughead, Chief Executive of VisitScotland, said:
“Scotland’s tourism industry is caring, resilient and an important part of communities the length and breadth of the country – this has never been so apparent, with businesses and individuals rallying around to offer support.
I’d like to say a huge thank you to all those in the industry who have shown such compassion and thought of others during this very challenging time.”
