Croydon Not Alone In Financial Crisis
Thornton Heath Chronicle Needs Financial Support
Thornton Heath Chronicle has been receiving record numbers of page views on its social media sites. The Editor states:
‘If every one of those tens of thousands of people had donated just £1 towards supporting The Chronicle we would have the funds to continue for five years.
Sadly, we have had no support for our survival campaign from readers since the last publication.
The numbers of people reading The Chronicle news feeds demonstrates the desire for local news and this edition, one of our best, covers so many important and powerful issues.
The Chronicle has always been funded on a shoestring.
Support from Community ward budgets, which have now been axed by the council and funding from Thornton Heath Community Action Team People’s Heath Trust bid, have paid for the printing and design costs in the past.
With barely any advertising and revenue coming in we need your support more than ever.’
To donate to The Chronicle survival campaign:
