Get your share

In recent months we have highlighted the emergence of community share issues as a relatively new way to raise capital for community projects. Two projects, small hydro schemes, launched last year – one on Mull and one just across the Sound of Mull in Sunart have been doing brilliantly. Garmony Hydro on Mull have smashed their target of £330,000 and are fast approaching the half million mark. Sunart have hit their target too and are intent on raising more.  If you’re wondering how to do it, get yourself along to Aberdeen a week on Tues.
