As a lot of you will already know we have been supported heavily in funding, knowledge and support from the Plunkett Foundation and we cannot thank them enough. We did it with their More than a pub program:
The Community Pub Business Support Programme (www.plunkett.co.uk/more-than-a-pub) is a unique 3 year programme established to help support community ownership of pubs in England. Its value is £3.85 million and is jointly funded by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government and Power to Change, the independent trust supporting community businesses in England. This exciting programme is led by Plunkett Foundation and delivered in collaboration with Co-operative & Community Finance, Key Fund, the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), Co-operative Mutual Solutions, Pub is the Hub, the British Beer and Pub Association and Locality. It offers the community pub sector access to an end-to-end support programme including capacity building and a finance package made up of loans and grants.
Please join us in thanking them in the continued support that they give us!
