Our January Fundraising

The totals are in for our January fundraising here at Blantyre Telegraph. As always, it’s YOU who’s made it happen. We’re delighted to announce £317 was raised for Blantyre good causes!

With £209 raised by our Supporter Group Subscriptions, £98 from the sale of Blantyre Project books and £13 in public donations, added to our overall fundraising total to date, it means Blantyre Telegraph (and its readers) have now raised a whopping £38,101 since the page started in 2011!

This month we donated £200 to the Miners Welfare kickstarting the new fundraiser to provide engraved plaques on the miners obelisk memorial. We also rounded up the remaining £117 to £140, donating to MacMillan Cancer Support. Not one penny was retained by us!

Our website has been updated with donation and award records, in the interests of full transparency here. https://theblantyretelegraph.com/raised/

As Blantyre Telegraph grows from strength to strength, we thank you for your continued interest and overwhelming support, making this possible. In February we’re continuing to raise further money for the Cemetery plaques and also hoping to raise funds to donate to the BOCS group, who have worked so hard for Blantyre through the pandemic.
