UPDATED 11 DECEMBER 14: Christmas is approaching, and thoughts turn to celebrations and that well-earned break. But before you leave the building there is another important date for the diary!
You have until December 12 to hand in your application to become a Community 21 shareholder.
For the last four months Community 21 has travelled the length and breadth of the country and met with more than 100 organisations.Everywhere we’ve been we’ve encountered enthusiasm and a warm welcome.
Applications for shareholding are coming in from organisations large and small and we are approaching our target minimum subscription level.
However, we still need a few more organisations to jump on board to get us over the line.
So, we’re counting down the days to hit our minimum subscription level!
Most people will be counting down the 12 days of Christmas, but we will be counting down the 12 reasons to invest in C21.
