Bristol’s Triodos Bank is first in the UK to launch crowdfunding platform

Money may make the world go round but it can also be used to create global changes, thanks to a new crowdfunding platform.

The very first bond to go live will re-finance Mendip Renewables Ltd solar farm, taking it into community ownership.

An estimated £1.4m will be generated over the project’s 25 years, which will go to support causes, including Key4Life, a charity that works to rehabilitate young offenders and those at risk of going to prison.
