What is Press Relief?

registered charity formed by the Cambridge News in 2003, the charity’s

Where do we get our funds from?

Through a
number of organised events in and around Cambridge. We rely heavily on
the goodwill of local businesses to support us through sponsorship and
acts in kind to help us get these events off the ground. We also rely
on the generosity of the public to support our many events, sometimes by
asking for help in the form of sponsorship.

So far Press Relief has raised more than £350,000 and has made awards to a whole range of groups and individuals.
