NewstrAid reveals 185th anniversary activity
- Industry News
NewstrAid is the industry charity supporting colleagues working in newspaper and magazine retail, wholesale and distribution.
We provide financial, emotional and practical support to people who are facing hardship and who have been employed in the sale and distribution of newspapers and magazines in the UK. This means people who deal with newspapers and magazines from the time they leave the printing press until they reach the reader.
The charity is integral to the trade and is there to assist when colleagues fall on hard times, including those who have suffered long term sickness or disability or faced redundancy, family breakdown or difficulty in supporting dependent children. If you, your immediate family or your dependants are in need or distress and you have worked in this area of the news trade, please contact us.
The NewstrAid Benevolent Fund has been in existence for over 180 years. It was founded in 1839 to provide welfare for the desperately poor newspaper sellers of London. One of our founding fathers was Charles Dickens who was president from 1854 until his death in 1870.
