Last month marked the fifth anniversary of The Bollard and the launch of the Bollard Booster campaign to sustain and expand this publication. The campaign will continue through December, giving you, our dedicated readers, the opportunity to make The Bollard a bigger, stronger (possibly even bionic) paper. It’s your chance to help us bring back the unique features and in-depth local reporting we’ve been known for since 2005.

Sincere thanks to those of you who’ve already contributed by mail and via PayPal. There’s a link to our PayPal account below.

Thanks again for reading. We look forward to informing and entertaining you in the years ahead.
