just over £150,000 raised so far
that’s amazing – thank you so much – diolch – there’s more to do
We need to raise at least £200,000 from the share offer to buy and refurb the pub.
Ideally, we would love to raise £250,000. With other matched funding it will get us off to a great start. It is a big ask from a small community and we know that a little from everyone goes a long way, so please only invest what you can afford.
If you have invested already, we still need your help to spread the word about the benefits of taking part in a social investment opportunity in Y Cross Cas-lai ..
- Own a share in our community asset – our hub within a pub
- Community pubs are 99% successful – there’s lower investor risk in physical assets
- Owning a community asset is cost effective – operating profits go back into the community
- Every pound raised gives us access to matched funding – a community booster
- We plan to pay interest to investors – as the business gains success over time, we all win
- Creates local jobs and supplier opportunities – turning economics in our favour
- Easy to access essential amenities – no more expensive 8 or 16-mile round trips!
- Great food and drink offers, essential services, sociable and wellbeing events – bringing us together
- rydym yn addo siarad cymraeg llawer! (We promise to speak Welsh lots!)
