March 2019 Fundraising

Our fundraising totals for end of March are now in! Another notable month with money raised for local Blantyre causes, which of course is the main reason why this page exists! 

We’re thrilled to announce that during March, Blantyre Telegraph has raised £166.50 towards local good causes! (This excludes all Blantyre Oscars fundraising which will be added in at end of April). Our fundraising now reaches a new whopping total of £23,170.47 for 127 local good causes to date since 2015!

Fundraising was from various sources:

£27.50 from the sale of Blantyre Project books.
£7.00 from public recurring subscriptions to Blantyre Telegraph website
£104.00 from public donations on Blantyre Telegraph website
£12.00 Advertising on our Blantyre Telegraph Website
£16.00 Advertising in our Monthly Magazine

Every penny raised goes entirely to local good causes, as always. It has already been spent as follows:

£65.42 towards buying plants for Park flower beds around Blantyre
£20.00 to Little Princess Trust for local lady Maryon Allan’s mum who is going through a tough time at the moment.
£20.00 to Stephanie Charity Kiltwalk supporting baby Islay who was not well recently due to bleed to the brain.
£50.00 for Competition Prize on Blantyre Telegraph on Gr. National Day.
£11.08 for Facebook awareness adverts launching our monthly Magazine
