Invitation to become a member of Freegle Ltd

Dear Freegle Volunteer

As you may know, Freegle has established itself as a Registered Society. This was made possible by the generous assistance of Co-operatives UK. It means that we have been able to formally retain our grassroots identity and democracy in decision making.

The way this works legally is that you pay a nominal fee to be a Member of Freegle. Members each receive a share certificate and have a vote that can used in General Meetings and the AGM, as well as for the election of the Directors who oversee the running of Freegle.

Who is eligible to be a Member of Freegle Ltd?

Anyone who:

  • Is over 16
  • Supports our Objects [1] and is a Freegle group owner, group moderator or other volunteer.
  • Has paid a one-off payment of £1 for a share in Freegle Ltd. This is the nominal amount to be paid by each Member. (If this is a barrier to you, please let know as there is help available.)

How do I become a Member?

  • Complete the Membership application form at [2]
  • Paying £1:
    • The easiest and most reliable payment with no excess fees is by bank transfer.
    • Bank transfers should be made to Freegle Limited, Unity Trust Bank, Account No. 20339094, Sort Code 60 83 01.
    • Please email if you wish to discuss other payment options.
  • Your share certificate will be emailed to you and you will be recorded on the Register of Members.
