Our fundraising has ended for November 2018 and we’re pleased to announce Blantyre Telegraph raised a whopping £224.47 for the community. This was raised from direct donations received from the public and the sale of Blantyre Project books!
We decided to spend it as follows:
- £25 was given to local man Barry Watt who took part in a charity walk for Calum’s Cabin.
- £149.97 on buying fantastic Amazon fire tablet(s) for the Blantyre Telegraph Christmas Competition, which will end on 16/12/18) and
- £49.50 for tinsel and baubles to decorate the Stonefield Public Park trees for the festive event and some additional selection boxes when the Santa’s grotto ran out.
This takes the total raised by Blantyre Telegraph to a massive £19,718.85 since we started fundraising in 2014, spread over 115 local good causes. These can transparently be found here on our newly revamped main website: https://theblantyretelegraph.com/raised/
