Invest in GMCR


We successfully raised £100,000 in Summer 2019 to fund solar arrays on three primary schools – Monton Green and Springwood in Salford, and Chesham in Bury.

Your investments will help them to save money on their energy bills, reduce their carbon emissions, and create a fund to support eco-friendly projects in the local area.

Our share offer

A total of 86 people and organisations applied for shares in our 2019 share offer, with investments ranging from just £100 to a maximum of £20,000.

By buying shares, you’ll become members of GMCR and receive share interest of up to 4% per annum, subject to the financial performance of the Society.

How are we doing?

We’ve reached our £100,000 target – many thanks to everyone who’s invested!

Total investment to date - £100,000: 100%
