Foster a more connected Peterborough. Support our work.
At Peterborough Currents, we work hard to create journalism that deepens your understanding of the city and connects you to your community. We tell stories you won’t find anywhere else, and we keep our journalism paywall-free so everyone can benefit.
But we can’t do this without you. We need funding from our audience to survive — and to grow. We choose to be powered by our community, because our community is at the centre of everything we do.
A message from publisher-editor Will Pearson
It’s no secret that it’s harder than ever to operate a journalism business these days. Sometimes, when our cash flows get tight, I wonder if it’s worth the effort.
But then I get out into the community to report a story, and I see how grateful people are when journalists take the time to listen and tell their stories with care. Or, a reader sends a note to say how much they appreciate our work, because they can’t find stories like ours anywhere else.
Encounters such as these remind me of how important Peterborough Currents is to the community, and how important it is that I keep trying to grow the business. Because right now, we’re held back by a lack of resources.
We choose to be funded by our audience because that’s the business model that aligns with our values. I believe it’s the best way to fund local journalism. But I need you to prove me right by signing up. Will you chip in?
