Bella is not only important to me as a reader and a resident of Scotland, but it's own diversity, depth and criticality of thought is vital for growing the Scotland I want to live in. Keeping its many wonderful freelancers afloat is such an important part of this. Go go go!

Norman Bissell 8th April 2021

Bella is well worth supporting for the range and depth of its articles and analysis. Freelance writers and artists need quality platforms like Bella and as much support as we can give them.

Bella is a fabulous and much needed platform for new ideas and independent journalism relevant to contemporary Scotland. Good luck with it Mike !
