The company set to transform a Fylde coast eyesore into state of the art business offices has promised to give a helping hand to start-up firms.

Damian Broughton, of Danbro, which bought the former Land Registry building at East Beach, Lytham, said that as well as room to expand his own accountancy and payroll firm, there will be office space provided for small businesses.

He said: “We know what it’s like when you are starting up. Every penny counts. We will have space for start-ups and social enterprise concerns.

“We want to make it something to be proud of, to make a good impact in Lytham, something to give a positive feel to the local community.”

Danbro was founded by Damian and his wife Helen in the front room of their house in Warton 13 years ago.

He said from that experience of gradually building up the business he wanted to give something back and help others to get on the road to success.

Currently Danbro operates from three offices at Whitehills Business Park plus another in London.

This month Danbro secured a new tie up with national engineering and technical recruiting firm Syntax to provide accountancy services for its workers.

As Danbro grows further he hopes to double the existing staff of 130 over a period of five years.
