BIG MILESTONE! We’ve reached our FIRST goal of £20K for our community greengrocers! We have to say a MASSIVE thank you to our shareholders, Tweeters and friends who have helped spread the word. It’s a fantastic achievement and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Not only have local people bought shares, we’ve had purchases from as far away as Australia!
Reaching this first target means we can get to work hiring a shop manager and push forward with the grand opening. However, we’re not done yet and still need to reach our original £30,000 target. So please, share this website with your friends, join us on Facebook and Twitter and keep supporting Dig-In.
Throughout February the shop has been open for Soup Saturdays. It’s an opportunity for passers by to drop in, have some free home made soup and learn about Dig-In. The drop-in’s, which run weekly from 11am-3pm have been a fantastic sucess so far and we’ve met lots of amazing people, shareholders and eager volunteers who want to help out.
We still have two more soup Saturday’s taking place on the 15th and 22nd of February so if you’re in the area, come along to 119 Bruntsfield Place, try some delicious homemade soup, and find out more about our plans.
STV recently came to visit Dig-In at 119 Bruntsfield Place to find out more about the share offer and the concept behind our greengrocer.. Read what some of our management committee had to say, see photos and more in their feature here.
