Congratulations on reaching the £30k target! Really pleased to be involved in proving local people/organisations can make a difference by using what we already have to help save the environment.

We need a lot more green energy, but we have a government that's directing subsidies towards fossil fuels. For the sake of everyone's future, we need to get the Tories out!

I feel so fully in my element when in water so it feels apt to invest in my element! Water is so essential for life so it’s so obvious we should use it to create energy and support community development.

Its important to create as much renewable electricity as possible so I've made a second donation to help secure the target.
