Reporter makes five times more than initial target
During the course of a working week, most local and regional newspaper journalists will feature a fundraiser doing his or her bit for a worthwhile cause.
But sometimes the journalists themselves become the story when they don their running shoes or strap on a parachute for a charity close to their hearts.
This is the section of HoldtheFrontPage where we celebrate reporters’ charity activities – and give you the chance to donate to the good causes they support.
We never tire of hearing about your efforts so if you are a journalist raising money for charity, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
