There are no 'non-dom billionaires who don't pay tax in the UK & enable the Fascists to rise', in my family, so I'm naturally interested.

NUJ Manchester & Salford Branch 20th August 2019

Very happy to support independent media in Manchester. The Meteor is doing excellent work increasing the diversity of stories told in the region and their journalism training workshops increase the range of voices telling those stories.

Claire Stocks 17th August 2019

Manchester desperately needs independent journalism and the Meteor also offers training and wider socially just activities - a force for good in the city

Conrad Bower 13th August 2019

Manchester's media needs a greater diversity of stories, and a wider range of voices telling them. I want to be one of those voices telling the stories that need telling.

We’re doing something different here and it’s going to change the quality and reach of local media. It’s so exciting!

Dave Toomer 27th June 2019

This is an excellent and much needed initiative and I'm delighted to support it. An independent, fierce and democratic media is as important to our communities as transport, education, and health. Wishing the Meteor continued success.

Mohamed 27th June 2019

Those guys are doing amazing work that our society is in need for right now! Thank you so much and keep up the good work
