Help keep The Western Echo thriving!

We are asking for the community’s support please by donating to our ongoing fundraising project – to help cover the costs of printing and distribution of The Western Echo.

With your help, we can continue to tell and share the stories that matter to our community.

Please help us by donating – every dollar counts!

We need your assistance please to keep publishing The Western Echo. Advertising income only partly covers our costs of printing, distribution, and other necessary publishing costs.

As many of you will know, both Kym and I volunteer our time and skills to publish The Western Echo, and to support many of our local groups, businesses, and NFPs. We don’t pay ourselves. We are asking for your help please so we can continue printing The Western Echo for all of our community to enjoy.

Every dollar counts. The money raised will help cover the shortfall in publishing expenses for the next approx 12 months.

OUR RECENT MATCHED FUNDING CAMPAIGN: From 3-7 June 2024, LINA (Local & Independent News Association) provided matched dollar-for-dollar funds for every $ we raised. This was a great succuss due to the amazing support we received from our local community. We sincerely thank everyone who contributed to this campaign – the funds raised will certainly help keep the publication going! – from Mel + Kym

Donations can be made here online on our website (via the PressPatron platform), or via direct Bank Transfer payment. If you would like our bank details to transfer funds – please just email Melanie:

Thank you!!
