Why Sponsor Rye News

Rye news is a not-for-profit enterprise supported by a team of volunteers for the purpose of providing news and information about a wide variety of local happenings and events in the area in and around Rye.

Local news plays a vital role in the sharing of news, opinions and and comment upon issues affecting national issues on our community. It provides a forum for expression of opinions and gives local people a voice.  In addition we provide information for the many visitors and tourists who visit Rye.

We want to continue to bring you Rye News but we need to expand our team of journalists, editors and admin staff so we are asking for your support.

How can you help us to take it to the next level?

We have upgraded the site to make it faster and offer you more resources but we need you to help us drive the project forward. To survive in the longer terms funds are needed to cover ongoing costs such as server, hosting, marketing, development and administration

Sponsor a page/Donate

You can support us by sponsoring a page, becoming a patron donating anything from as little as £5 per month or one off amounts.
