We all have that one person in our family and friendship group who’s so difficult to buy for. They seem to have everything and the last thing they want is more ‘stuff’.
Our publisher Reach thinks it has the ideal solution – a subscription to their local newspaper so they can stay in touch with what’s going on in their area, enjoy daily puzzles, letters, fun, reviews and everything that makes their local paper the trusted title it is.
For £30, you’ll be able to give the gift of local news to your loved one this Christmas.
The £30 pays for your chosen newspaper for 13 weeks.
And it’s simple to buy. Just fill out some details on this form , choosing which paper you’d like to gift, and we will take care of the rest.
Your lucky recipient will then receive paper vouchers in the post which they can exchange, at selected retailers, for the newspaper you’ve chosen. They get to stay informed with all their local news and you get extra kudos for your original gift idea.
You can buy a subscription for 13 weeks, 6 months or 12 months, and it’s all at a few clicks of a button.
To make your gift extra meaningful, you’ll also be able to generate a free, personalised digital front page for your loved one. You submit some pictures, we’ll generate a front page PDF which you can print out at home.
You can see below a list of newspapers involved, along with some FAQs to help you on your way. Merry Christmas!
