Support South Leeds Life

Join the pound-a-week supporters

We are asking all our readers to consider taking out a supporter’s subscription. Everyone who takes out a £4 per month bank standing order will be credited on the website and have our newspaper delivered to their door. More importantly you will be enabling us to keep bringing you the news that matters to you about your neighbourhood.

We know times are tough and not everyone can afford to pay for their news, so the website and the newspaper will both remain free.

We are trusting ourselves to you, the South Leeds community. We will continue to apply for grants and sell advertising, but achieving a bedrock of supporters’ subscriptions will give us a firm financial footing and help us plan for the future.

Sign up online here:

If you use internet banking simply set up a monthly standing order to: South Leeds Life Group; sort code: 08-92-99; account number: 65591910. Please email us to tell us you’ve subscribed and tell us where to deliver your paper.

Alternatively download your subsciption form here and become a Pound-a-week Sponsor today: Pound-a-week-Standing-Order; or email us your address and we will send you a form

All organisations which become sponsors are listed here with a link through to their organisation’s homepage; they also receive a week’s free advertising on the blog with an article describing their organisation’s activities.

For organisations, we welcome Standing Order payments if that’s easy, at a minimum of £5 per month – or we can arrange annual payments if you’d prefer (minimum £60 per year); this is standard level sponsorship. You will be given priority on our distribution of print editions, listed on the website, and receive regular opportunities to feed us content.

Organisations and groups can also become a:

  • ‘Bronze’ sponsor at £25+ per month (£300 per year),
  • ‘Silver’ at £50+ per month (£600 per year),
  • ‘Gold’ at £100+ per month (£1,200 per year), or
  • ‘Platinum’ at £300+ per month (£3,600 per year).

These sponsorship deals also entail a guaranteed package of coverage through the website and print editions; however, we absolutely reserve the right to scrutinise you (eg if you’re up to no good!), and will risk losing our sponsorship if need be.

Please email us at for more information.
