Pledge your support to local news

Having a local news service is vital to a community such as Penrith. Without local news services, there are countless stories that would never get told.

In recent years we have seen national news organisations pull print publications in our area, while digital content is often beyond a paywall.

Western Sydney Publishing Group, publishers of The Western Weekender, have committed to keeping our content in both print and online completely free for our readers.

Quality news is, however, expensive to produce. That’s why your support is critical, and why as a publisher we appreciate your contributions to keeping local news strong and free.

Making a pledge to The Western Weekender helps ensure our print and digital content continues to thrive. You’re supporting journalism at its most raw level, as we continue to tell Penrith’s stories.

We thank you for your contribution.
