Our September Fundraising

It’s the main reason this website exists! Our fundraising totals for September 2019 are in and have now been allocated to local good causes. It’s been another absolute corker of a month!

During September, Blantyre Telegraph has raised an outstanding £828.25 towards various local good causes! Since 2015, our fundraising now reaches a new updated incredible total of…wait for it…. £27,207 for 159 local good causes!

Fundraising was from various sources:

£186.00 from the sales of Edition 6 (September) Magazine.
£48.00 from Magazine Advertising.
£12.00 from public subscriptions on our website
£32.00 from public donations
£400.00 from private donations
£137.25 from the sale of Blantyre Project books.
