Gareth will be talking about how Community Share offers are proving a vital lifeline for communities across the country, from residents wanting to save their local pub, to fans aiming to take ownership of their football club or local people intending to produce their own renewable energy together.
We will also joined by Lynn Tolmon from Homebaked. Lynn will be discussing 'Crowdfunding' as an alternative method of raising finance for a business, a project or idea.
