Community Shares Booster Programme

This means that Coops UK, supported by Power to Change, will match fund investment from individual investors, pound for pound, up to the target of £50,000. Flo's is still keen to offer shares to individual investors, but this award means that Coops UK will make up any shortfall if it does not reach its target by the closing date of the offer.

As part of the application process Flo's share offer and other documentation was successfully assessed for the Community Shares Standard Mark.
