We have a loan from Key Fund.
They are an organisation that administers loans to community enterprises such as The Thorold. Click here to go to the Key Fund website. They are themselves funded by a number of organisations:
The Key Fund was born out of the demise of the coal and steel industries in South Yorkshire in the late nineties. They say:
Our central mission is to provide finance – flexible loans and grant/loan packages – to help community and social enterprises to start-up, become sustainable, or grow. It’s not just about the money. It’s also about providing the right kind of support to help our investees have the best possible chance of success.
We are grateful for the Key Fund’s vital support!
