We Are Crowdfunding for the Next Edition of The Eclipse

We are crowdfunding £5,000 in order to create, print and distribute 20,000 copies of the next edition of The Eclipse.

Every copy costs us 25p - so £5 would give us 20 copies. £25 would give us 100.



What is The Eclipse?
The Eclipse is an alternative tabloid: telling unheard stories, giving a platform to ordinary people and providing training for local, citizen journalists.

This newspaper is part of our vision for a society in which the voice of the people is louder than the voice of corporate-owned press. Where news is accessible, relevant, independent and investigative. And where people are empowered to raise issues and share their own stories.


The first edition of The Eclipse was printed at the end of last year and 10,000 copies made their way into the hands of local people living in the North East. It went down a storm. You can read it and find out more here.
For edition 2, we want to double our distribution, but we can only do that with your financial support.

Please donate today and help us get this paper out to as many people as possible. Every donation will go directly to getting this paper in to peoples hands -
