The Salford Star is the city's only independent press, which has been reporting on community issues for 13 years, with over 5,000 articles, ten print magazines and an online readership of around 40,000 per month.

The Salford Star receives no grants or funding and is reliant on donations from the public to keep going. But whatever miserable amounts of money we have will run out at the end of January and the award winning Salford Star is set to close.

In a last bid for survival the Salford Star has been given a unit on Salford Precinct, which is now open every day until 9th December, from 10am until 5pm.

Until Sunday 2nd December there is a display of incredible and unique artwork, photos and artefacts in the shop which will be auctioned by Charles Taylor Auctioneers (Salford) at noon next Thursday 6th December and livestreamed to the Star shop.

If thirty thousand people who visited the Salford Star online donated five pounds - that works out at £150,000. Do you "Understand"? It is COMMON SENSE! 🤗 And is FAR BETTER than attempting to auction off a wheelbarrowfull of tat.

I'm sorry, but who's gonna want to buy any of that shit? I mean come on, just do what I suggested months ago and set up a patreon account. That way the money'll come in, and you, Steve, won't have to go on Universal Credit.
