Fantastic launch to News OnTheWight’s Funding Drive: Here’s how you can contribute

Thanks to everyone who kicked off the launch of News OnTheWight’s Funding Drive. If you haven’t yet, please do – and help us continue to deliver trustworthy, independent news to the Isle of Wight.

the word trust engraved on a sign

A massive thank you to everyone who has contributed since last night.

You’ve given us a fantastic launch to our funding drive, donating over £1,500 – with many of those being monthly payments. We really can’t thank you enough.

What has been really touching is that people have given at the level that they can afford, from £2 a month, all the way up to some pretty sizeable amounts.

An amazing start
This gives us an amazing start – But we’re going to have to build up more of a flow to get things on a steady keel, to continue to deliver trustworthy, independent Isle of Wight news.

So if you haven’t got around to contributing yet, please do.

In the words of The Guardian (Turns out they seem to know quite a lot about putting words together effectively, who’d a thunk it?)

“We need your support so we can keep delivering quality journalism that’s open and independent. And that is here for the long term. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable.”

Show your support
If you think trustworthy, independently-owned Isle of Wight media is important and value what we do please click on the graphic below and support us.

It’s easy – You can set up regular monthly contributions or a one-off payment to OnTheWight through PayPal, (you don’t need a PayPal account, just a credit card or bank details to hand).

If you’d rather not use Paypal, get in touch and we can share other ways to support us.

Can’t stand The Guardian and think their asking for money is laughable.

But for you guys, I’ll donate. Will try to sort out a transfer. Thanks for all the hard work.
