Bristol Wood Recycling Project reaches fundraising target.
Social enterprise Bristol Wood Recycling Project (BWRP) has raised the funds it needs to buy its new premises – hitting its £430,000 target in just a fortnight.
The co-op launched the bond offer, to buy its new base in the city’s St Philip’s district, on 28 January via Triodos Bank’s crowdfunding platform.
Co-founder and director Ben Moss said: “We did it! All of us here at BWRP are over the moon – and beyond – that in just over two weeks since publicly launching the bond offer, we have raised the £430,000 necessary to buy our home.
“This is the most affirming thing that could happen for us – that our community, from far and wide, are committing their faith in us, investing in our future.”
