Invest in gmcr


We successfully raised £145,000 in June 2018 to fund solar arrays on four primary schools in Salford – Bridgewater, Broadoak, Light Oaks and Peel Hall.

Your investment 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

People and organisations have funded our project by buying shares in GMCR.  The minimum investment is just £100, and the maximum is £20,000.

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

  • combined energy bill savings for the sites of £130,000 over the life of the project;
  • a Community Fund of £150,000 to fund eco-friendly projects in the local community.
