Bang! We’ve just launched a Crowdfunding campaign – it’s our way of asking for the community’s help. Basically, we want to raise £15’000 to pay a new, experienced part-time journalist to help us take our coverage to the next level.
We started the Brixton Blog because of a passion for Brixton. There’s always been a lot going on and we wanted to make sure you knew about it all. (The good and the bad!)
We’ve come a long way. In July 2012 we launched a printed newspaper and now print 10,000 copies a month – The Bugle has become a much-loved local news source.
We’ve been influential in supporting Brixton locals, whether through campaigns or their small businesses and organisations. We helped save the Lambeth Country Show from cancellation. We’ve given voice to protests and issues like the proliferation of the big supermarket chains, or the Ritzy Living Wage campaign, even improving the Brixton Rec.
Brixton is changing, so it’s all the more important we keep those who make the decisions about our local area – from the council to housing developers – to account.
News is our bread and butter, but it’s not the only thing we do. We cover the arts, culture, sports, provide insightful features, check out the good and not so good restaurants for you, and have even written a number of profiles on YOU – the amazing people who make Brixton what it is.
And now we are asking for your help to continue our work, while giving you even more.
To contribute simply go to our Crowdfunding page right here. Because you know what they say, every little really does help. Massive THANK YOUS in advance.
