Pub Campaign Latest

Fundraisers have sent us the following update about plans to buy their local pub, the Cross Inn, Hayscastle Cross, and turn it into a community hub. You can see other articles about the venture here

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 refurbish the pub.

Ideally, we would like 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.

Every pound raised gives us access to matched funding.
