This Wednesday (9 March) three girls from Chiswick did their bit to help the people of Ukraine with an unusual but useful fundraising event.

Taylor Nolan (nine years old) and Trixie Cracknell (ten years old) and Elodine Walton (ten years old) decided to do a street clean in their local area. They cleaned the streets in Paxton Road, Short Road and Sutherland Road in return for donations for the benefit of refugees fleeing Vladimir Putin's army.

Richard, Taylor's father said, "Over two and a half hours they collected twelve large bags of leaves and rubbish. A massive thanks to all those that generously donated, and if anyone else would like to donate then please do so."

The girls had a target of £200 but over three times that amount has already been given and further donations are welcomed.

The money they raised will go to the Disasters Emergency Committee which is co-ordinating efforts to help displaced Ukrainians.

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.
