Original Post: Enjoying Blantyre Project? Can you please Donate a little to help with 2022 Running Costs?
As a non-profit charitable website providing a FREE service here and on Facebook, I have unavoidable annual costs of £434 which I 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 running costs are. (£235.00 WordPress.com 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!) Necessary costs to ensure accuracy and archiving.
I usually pay this each year or raise money to help pay for these expenses, to ensure this site remains FREE for everybody who follows it. Thanks to donations and book sales, an incredible £300 has already been raised, leaving ‘just’ £134 still to raise in 2022.
Can you perhaps spare a little donation of a pound or two to help me get to the annual target? Help secure the site for another year. 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.
Donations of any amount can be made here : https://www.paypal.com/donate/?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=8DUYV3YQKM6G2&source=url
Hope you’re all continuing to enjoy the website and all the research. I’ve LOTS more to explore and show you. THANKS.
