News from Community Shares Scotland HQ

15th Jun 2016

Hi folks

It's all go here at Community Shares Scotland HQ.

We're thrilled that just 3 weeks in, Glenwyvis Distillery community share offer has reached its first half million! Read the full story here and find out how you can become a shareholder in Scotland's first ever community owned distillery.

We're also delighted that BroomPower Community Hydro Scheme have launched their community share offer. BroomPower is a Community Hydro scheme being developed near the beautiful village of Ullapool in the North West Highlands of Scotland.  The group are looking to raise £900,000 through community shares to build the hydro which will provide both green energy and an income to fund community projects over the next 20-40 years. For full details visit Microgenius.

Don't forget that we're heading north in June to deliver a series of 'Getting Ready for Investment' workshops. Sponsored by Highlands and Islands Enterprise and in partnership with Social Investment Scotland and Local Energy Scotland, the aim of the events is to build capacity and knowledge of social investment, shared ownership of renewable energy and community shares. Click here for locations and booking details.
