Our June and July Fundraising!

The totals are in for our June and July 2021 fundraising here at Blantyre Telegraph and what an AMAZING two months it’s been with some tremendous things happening as Covid restrictions started to ease. As always, it’s YOU who’s made it happen. We’re delighted to announce a whopping £754 was raised for Blantyre good causes!

With £478 raised by our Supporter Group Subscriptions, £82 by public donations, £100 private donations and £94 from the sale of Blantyre Project books added to our overall fundraising total to date, it means Blantyre Telegraph (and its readers) have now raised a whopping £43,488 since the page started in 2011! 

This month saw some generous donations, dividing out £754 entirely back to the Blantyre community. We donated:

a) £475.00 for a brand new shed for the Community Garden behind the Miners Welfare, something which was greatly appreciated back in June.
b) £200.00 was donated to Terminal One’s fundraiser page to help buy their new Minibus in July.
c) and finally the balance £79.00 was donated to local organisation LAMH to help increase awareness of mental health issues.

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 August we’ll be helping a couple of Blantyre children who have been finding things difficult this last month for one reason or other and also going to make a donation to David Livingstone Birthplace to help buy more plants for the gardens for all to enjoy.
