We’ve once again counted the money in local collection tins and added up the sales revenue of the Blantyre Telegraph newspaper for February sales. Rather a modest month, but appreciated all the same, with all money going to local good causes.
February 2016 sales of Blantyre Telegraph amounted to £211.74 which added to totals previously, means the grand total raised to date is a whopping £5,029.55. We’re super pleased to break through the 5 grand mark, raised in this short time!!
The money has been paid out to 43 different local good causes in Blantyre since June 2015, which is transparent here https://theblantyretelegraph.wordpress.com/raised/
The February breakdown is as follows, with thanks to the following organisations and businesses:
Jinxy’s Bakery £50.22,
Mo’s Family Shopper £50.00,
Blantyre Project £40.00,
Advertising Revenue £24.00 (Stephens Photography and Ideal Eyewear),
Blantyre Carrigans £23.97,
Blantyre Library £16.37,
Royal Bank of Scotland £7.05,
Miners Welfare £0.12
The newspaper can be bought from all the above organisations for just £1, with the next edition out now. Did you know, we keep some news back from this page, so the content on the newspaper is fresh and new.
We have the ability here to raise SO much more, but need your help as we’re hoping to raise awareness of the newspaper and would welcome anybody’s ideas about that. We’ll be announcing this week how February’s money will be spent within Blantyre.
