In 2020 we have opportunity to acquire the freehold of the Centre and, in order to raise the capital needed, a Community Share Offer is being made.
the deadline for applying for our community shares has been extended to 29 February 2020
there is now an application form for share purchase which can be submitted online, at the end of this section
Community shares are a way of raising finance for support of charitable activities like crowd funding.
Involve@Lincoln Ltd is a charitable Community Benefit Society that intends to purchase the centre so that it can become sustainable and secure in its future.
Everyone who has an interest in mental health in Lincoln, who uses the centre or supports its activities can become a shareholder in the ownership of the centre.
People and organisations can invest anything between £50 and £20,000, all are welcome at any amount.
This is a unique opportunity to ensure that the centre continues to serve the City of Lincoln sustainably into the future.
We need to raise at least £70k to go with a package of grants and loans to make up the full amount needed to buy the building and make some much needed repairs and improvements. But we must get this together by the end of January 2020 for the plan to go ahead.
Details of the share offer and how to apply for shares is available for download below
