Scope turn to financial markets

The charity Scope is taking the relatively unusual step of issuing a £20 million bond - a form of IOU.

Investors in the bond will give their money up-front: the charity then uses it and eventually pays it back, with interest. Richard Hawkes, CEO of Scope, explains their plan.
