The Leveller has grown rapidly from being a start up in Langport to be Somerset’s leading newspaper in just 8 years. To achieve this in such a short time we have kept a tight control over our costs. We have also focused on our hard copy newspapers.
We would like to do more. We have already offered internships to three local Somerset students to give them a taste of journalism and what it is like to work at a newspaper.
Our newspapers are free and we want them to remain free into the future. We don’t want to compromise the quality of our journalism. We have had great support from advertisers from the local business community and we would like to say “thank you” for that support.
But to do do more for young people, to develop online offerings too and to expand the reach of our newspapers we need your help.
If you feel able to donate to support the Leveller in all that we do and want to do in the future, you can give a donation using the box below. All donations we receive are kept in a separate account and used specifically to:
a) help offer more opportunities to young Somerset students with an interest in journalism
b) expand our circulation
Be it £1 or £100, any donation will be gratefully received and will help us achieve our goal of revitalising hard copy newspapers in Somerset and help get more young people involved.
