If you are a local business then why not come along to the Hastings Pier Charity’s breakfast event on 23rd January at the White Rock Theatre and learn about the benefits of becoming a community share holder. We are excited to be hosting Andy Walsh as their guest speaker.
Andy is the General Manager of FC United of Manchester and he will be describing how they have raised over £2m through their trailblazing community share scheme, how they have engaged local people and how they have now starting work on their £5.5m new football ground.
The Hastings Pier Charity have so far raised £13.7m towards the restoration of the Pier and they now need to focus on making sure it has a vibrant and confident economic future through investment in income generating assets.
They have started this push through the launch of our own community share offer which we reported on back in October 2013. They are now seeking to engage local businesses in a support fund aimed at raising £100k towards the overall target of £500k. The Hastings Pier Charity has the offer of a match funding grant so it will be able double any investment pound for pound.
