The Hogarth Youth Program faces some tough weeks and months ahead due to the closure of schools and the fall off in attendees at the Centre.

The Charity is therefore especially grateful to the Rotary of Chiswick and Brentford (Including Hammersmith Rotary Club, which has just donated £500 to the youth program.

David Scott, the President of the Rotary Club, said; “The Rotary is always keen to support local community projects like the work done by Hogarth Youth Program”.

Fred Lucas, the Chair of the Hogarth Charity, said, “Trustees and youth workers are determined to sustain the youth program given its importance to over 300 young people and their families. Donations like this one from the Rotary really help us to do so, especially during such extraordinarily challenging times, and confirm an important partnership between the Centre and local businesses.”

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.

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.
