Comment on this story on the

The organisers of the Chiswick Cheese Market, Cheesewick, have made a donation of £1,000 to the The Red Cross Ukraine Appeal.

The event is run by a volunteer group of woman, all local to the area or with strong links to W4, who say that it is the visitors to the market along with the traders, market volunteers and other local businesses that have enabled them to make a donation.

They add, “We love running it – and our other events – and contributing to our lovely W4. As a Community Interest Company we have forged links with and supported only local charities with donations and practical support, but as a group we have been shocked by the humanitarian disaster developing in Ukraine.”

The cheese market takes place on the third Sunday of each month in the market place in front of the former police station. Every month it has over 150 different cheese, plus chutney, crackers, cheeseboards and many more cheese related products.

The next market is on Sunday 20 March from 9.30am to 3pm.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
