January is here, which means the totals are in for our December fundraising here at Blantyre Telegraph. Another great month! We’re delighted to announce £453 was raised for Blantyre good causes!
With £221 raised by our Supporter Group Subscriptions, £178 from the sale of Blantyre Project books, £36 in public donations, £18 in advertising revenue on our website, the theme last month was to spread some Christmas cheer.
Added to our overall fundraising total to date, it means Blantyre Telegraph (and its readers) have now raised a whopping £37,784 since the page started in 2011! It’s entirely been given to 222 local good causes, spreading a significant amount of cheer and community spirit along the way and not one penny was retained by us!
£293 was put towards buying six fantastic Christmas competition prizes (Sarah and Iain you’ve still to pick up yours!). A further £160 was given to 2 random delighted families in Asda (2 x £80) towards their Christmas big shopping bill!
Our website has been updated with donation and award records, in the interests of full transparency here. https://theblantyretelegraph.com/raised/
