Michelmores advises Mama Bamboo and Paces Sheffield as both release opportunities for investors on the crowdfunding website Triodos Bank

Michelmores' Corporate team has advised the leading Cerebral Palsy charity, Paces Sheffield on its bond offer which is currently being promoted by Triodos Bank and was launched on their crowdfunding website in June. Investors are invited to support the specialist school which offers life-changing skills for children with Cerebral Palsy and other neurological motor disorders. The bond offer will raise capital to support the charity's ambitious growth plans including a new premises which will enable the school to increase its capacity by 75%.

The team has also advised Mama Bamboo on its EIS share offer, likewise listed on Triodos' website. Mama Bamboo's award winning sustainable baby products are made using 100% compostable bamboo fibre and the company is the only UK nappy brand to be B-Corp certified. The company aims to raise over £500,000 to support the marketing and technology required to accelerate sales growth. As an early stage and growth company, Mama Bamboo's share offer qualifies under the EIS tax relief scheme, as assured by HMRC in May.

Corporate partner, Alexandra Watson led the Michelmores team with support from Adam Quint and Jess Hopkins.

Alex said:  'It was a pleasure to support both Paces Sheffield and Mama Bamboo to bring their investment opportunities to market on the Triodos website. The response from investors has already been positive and we look forward to continuing to monitor the individual offers and seeing the progress made in the corresponding growth plans.'
