This website has now been running for over a decade, and although ad revenue helps fund the website, it does not cover the costs. That’s why I created a structure with DonorBox where you can contribute to website costs and time invested in writing and researching news articles.

It’s very similar to how The Guardian and many smaller websites now seek to generate revenue in the face of rising costs and falling advertising.

Whether it’s a one-time donation or a regular donor, each additional support goes a long way toward covering the costs of running this website and keeping you regularly up to date with London news and happenings.
