Fund boost for investigative journalism

This idea to boost independent journalism was announced earlier this month and looks well worth supporting.
Some of Britain’s best known investigative reporters are launching a new fund to encourage a new generation of reporters, and support independent journalism.
They include Martin Bright, Heather Brooke, Nick Davies, Phillip Knightley, Paul Lashmar and David Leigh.
The aim of The Investigations Fund is to raise finance for "challenging projects that hold the government and powerful interests to account".
They are also experimenting with new ways to pay for independent journalism and seeking ideas on what needs investigating and would welcome support.
You can read more about the Fund and its aims here.
