Thanks for considering helping keep 'Kingston Park Life' as a real, paper magazine!

Kingston Park Life has been going for 3 years now, but unfortunately isn't managing to raise enough from the business advertising to cover the costs of printing and delivery to each household and other ways of raising funds haven't proved successful.

I would like to keep the magazine as a free publication so it can keep being enjoyed by everyone, whatever their circumstances, but each edition now is costing around £1000 more than it receives in income.

So I wanted to see if there might be enough support for it continuing as a real, paper publication and if it could be possible to raise enough donations to help keep Kingston Park Life going as a magazine for the coming year of 2021.

There will be 2 more editions of Kingston Park Life this year, with the last certain edition being Christmas 2020. To keep the magazine going as a paper copy into 2021, funds will need to be in place by the end of January 2021.

The magazine is delivered to over 3,200 households around Kingston Park, Bankfoot, Greenside and Woolsington , so if even a quarter of those felt able to offer just £5 we would be able to guarantee another year of the magazine.

So thanks again for considering supporting this, any donations will be put to continuing the publication being real for as long as we can, I appreciate your support and encouragement :)
