Ray Hughes, Wellington Orbit, took on SITR and community shares to transform an HSBC building in Wellington. From a bank to a new arthouse, cinema and café bar. In this podcast Ray shares how they made the vision a reality.


Ray's story is unique and something any social business can learn from during their social investment journey. The money has enabled them to lease the building and to carry out a substantial amount of the development work, giving a centre to the town that will not only boost community spirit but also upskill local people.
