To become a member you will need to buy a share.

We really value the support from our shareholders which has enabled us to survive over the years. Now we need to ask for help from old and new friends to ensure another successful decade and deliver even more benefits to the community.

Our crowd-funding campaign encourages donations but you can still buy shares.

This will enable you to make a secure payment to the Dunbar Community Bakery via the PayPal e-payments system using a credit or debit card.

If you wish to invest more than £100 in shares please download and print out the invitation-to-invest form and send us a cheque by post or pick up a form in the shop.

Once your e-payment has been processed by PayPal, we will send you an e-mail to confirm receipt. A share certificate will be sent to your postal address in due course.

You will also receive shareholder updates from the Management Committee by e-mail when they are issued.

Legal Stuff: Dunbar Community Bakery Ltd

Dunbar Community Bakery was founded as an Industrial and Provident Society (a type of co-operative formed for the benefit of the community) in June 2009 to enable the community to set up and run this business. This legal structure makes it easy for local people to invest in the business to give it the working capital it requires to become established.

Dunbar Community Bakery Limited (2714RS) is a registered society under the Co-operative and Community Benefit Societies Act 2014, formerly an Industrial and Provident Society (Friendly and Industrial and Provident Societies Act 1968) and so registered with the Financial Conduct Authority.
