Our February Fundraising

The totals are in for our February 2021 fundraising here at Blantyre Telegraph. As always, it’s YOU who’s made it happen. We’re delighted to announce a whopping £630 was raised for Blantyre good causes!

With £219 raised by our Supporter Group Subscriptions, £212 by public donations, £43 from the sale of Blantyre Project books and £156 from Advertising on our main website, added to our overall fundraising total to date, it means Blantyre Telegraph (and its readers) have now raised a whopping £38,731 since the page started in 2011! 

This month saw some generous donations, dividing out £630 entirely back to the Blantyre community. We donated:

a) £230 to the Miners Welfare via Andy Simm for our joint fundraiser to provide new, engraved memorial extensions on the miners obelisk memorial at High Blantyre Cemetery.
b) £200 to the West End Bar for ‘Blantyre Easter Egg’ Appeal, helping to ensure all Blantyre kids are going to get a FREE Easter Egg.
c) £80 of new books to Margaret Leith’s elderly mother who was having a difficult time in lockdown.
d) £50 to the local family of Liam McKendrick to assist with funeral costs.
e) £50 Valentines cash prize to Brenda McGrail for winning our competition.
f) £20 to 10 year old Philip Holland’s Sponsored walk for Scottish SPCA.

Not one penny was retained by us!
