  1. Blantyre Toy Drive 2021

    The Annual Blantyre Toy Drive is back! Throughout November until 10th December 2021, we're raising funds to buy toys which will be donated this Christmas to local children. In conjunction with Agnews and Glen Travel, Blantyre Telegraph hopes to buy many, many toys and have Santa give them out for FREE to local families in mid December, just ahead of Christmas. We're hoping to light up loads of little faces (from babies to age 12) and hope you can make a small contribution to help. This has been a tremendous success in previous years and we hope with some festive kindness, to make it another memorable campaign. Payment is by Paypal or card on a secure server. We don't hold any of your details. Please donate whatever you can. Thanks.

  2. Annual Running Costs

    It costs Blantyre Telegraph £235 to run per year in hosting costs ($300 Business Plan on Wordpress) plus £20 domain renewal. We hope you can help us out by donating a few pounds in return for continuing to enjoy the news for free. We're hoping to raise this amount before Renewal for January 2022.
