Newsquest Media Group is launching a campaign to support the victims of the war unfolding in Ukraine across the majority of its Northern and local news titles.
Dozens of Newsquest’s titles, including The Northern Echo, Bolton News, Lancashire Telegraph, will join forces for the publisher’s ‘There With Ukraine’ campaign.
For the campaign, the titles will feature a special front page over the next week, asking readers to join them in pledging money to the Red Cross DEC Ukraine Humanitarian appeal.
Newsquest has also set up a single fundraising page for the cause with 5p from the cover price of every Newsquest daily newspaper sold on Thursday 17th March donated to the Red Cross Fund, which is dedicated to helping those affected by the war.
Newsquest Editorial Development Director Toby Granville said: “We’re proud that so many of our news brands are standing united behind this cause as we launch our There With Ukraine appeal.
“Like everyone, we have been shocked and appalled at Russia’s invasion and want to do whatever we can to help.
“We know the generosity of our readers up and down the country and we hope they will join us in supporting this, the most worthy of causes.”
