Invest in the future of The Rockfield Centre
As part of our fundraising efforts, which have already raised almost £1 Million in grant funding, Oban Communities Trust will be offering everyone in the community the chance to buy into this exciting project through a Community Shares Initiative. This will raise some much-needed cash and also strengthen the community ownership of The Rockfield Centre.
WHY COMMUNITY SHARES?
Investing in community shares is a practical way of supporting a project that serves your community - in this case, The Rockfield Centre.
The money raised will help pay for the Centre, and in return you can receive limited interest on your investment. If you want your money back, you have the right to withdraw some or all of your share capital, subject to terms and conditions.
WHAT'S ON OFFER
Oban Communities Trust is in the process of becoming a Community Benefit Society, the type of organisation allowed to sell community shares.
The Trust is also finalising the details of the share offer, like how much a share will cost and what return investors can expect. If you'd like to be kept up to date on developments, click the link below to be added to our mailing list.
