Save The Sun Newspaper


During this Coronavirus crisis, Britain's most-loved newspaper is under threat. Declining sales and advertising revenue could consign this shining example of journalistic standards to a terrible fate, and it's time that we stood up and took a stand.

The Sun was already suffering a financial crisis before Covid-19 even took hold ...

However, things have now become desperate for this historically blemish-free institution of British publishing with their very own Dan Wootton encouraging everyone to buy a copy and keep them in business - it does cost less than a cup of coffee after all.

Instead of just merely buying a copy to keep them in business, I want to take things further.

I will take every penny that is donated to this fundraising campaign and every day I will use it to buy copies of The Sun from my local store, and then deliver them absolutely free of charge to homes in my local area in South Essex. If other people follow my lead and set up their own fundraising campaigns, we could send their circulation through the roof in a matter of days!

IMPORTANT NOTE: During the lockdown, it's taking ages to get my kids to bed every night, and usually by the time they have settled down my local Sainsbury's is closed. If this happens on any particular day, I will donate the money to local food banks instead.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: I don't like rain, so if it is raining on any particular day I will donate any money collected to local food banks instead.

YET ANOTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: I don't like sun or wind either, so if it is sunny or windy on any particular day I will donate any money collected to local food banks instead. I'm not fond of clouds either.

ONE FURTHER IMPORTANT NOTE: We should all be staying at home as much as possible at the moment to protect the NHS and save lives, and so if I think that there may be any people out and about in the United Kingdom at the same time as me on any particular day I will remain at home and donate any money collected to local food banks instead.

ONE MORE VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: If you actually think that I am giving that sh*t rag a single penny of this instead of donating the money to local food banks, you're very much mistaken.

Any questions? I'm on Facebook at Man Behaving Dadly -

ONE ABSOLUTELY VITAL NOTE THAT HAS BEEN DRAFTED IN CONJUNCTION WITH MY ADVISORS: After some discussions with all relevant parties, it has been decided that all monies raised will be donated to the Essex Coronavirus Action Urgent Food Bank Appeal. Essex Coronavirus Action is a joint project between local government and a group of prominent Facebook admins in the county, including myself - it has also been 'blue ticked' by Facebook. A bank account is currently being maintained 'in trust' by the local authority's partner EALC, and any food bank in the county is being invited to apply for micro-grants as and when they need them - I will be paying all donations into that account as and when they clear in my bank account. They also have their own GoFundMe page running under the 'Essex Coronavirus Action' banner.
