As a non-profit charitable website providing a FREE service here and on Facebook, I have unavoidable annual costs of £434 that I now kindly seek help from readers with. In order to research accurately and provide a FREE ancestry service to all Blantyre people, it may come as a surprise, just how much Blantyre Project annual running costs are. (£235.00 WordPress domain and website business plan hosting giving YOU functionality here, £79 British Newspaper Archive to research stories and dates and Ancestry Premium Plan £119.99 to provide FREE ancestry to readers!)
I usually pay this each year to ensure this site remains FREE for everybody who follows it. Managing other Blantyre related websites too, this can soon add up. So, this year I’m trying something a little different.
Can you perhaps spare a little donation of a pound or two to help me get to the annual target? You can choose any amount and pay safely by Paypal, credit or debit card to ‘Blantyre Telegraph’s’ Account which will directly fund Blantyre Project. I do not hold any card details. Every single pound helps remove my personal outlay here.
Indeed, we actually have further costs for third party applications on the website such as our “Community” feature, and further more minor subscriptions to websites like Scotlandsplaces and Britain From Above. SO, your donation is MOST welcome!
