All Together Now!’s 10th anniversary marked by donation of new van: All Together NOW!, a health and disability newspaper based in Liverpool, yesterday celebrated its 10th birthday.
The founder of the British construction company, Steve Morgan – who was born in Liverpool – marked the occasion by providing the charity newspaper with a new, fully branded, delivery van.
Demand for the publication has grown continually, and there are now 110,000 copies distributed every two months. To distribute the paper, drivers had to use their own cars to travel to over 150 different venues in the north-west. Morgan’s donation will help to ease the pressure on them.
“All Together NOW! is a brilliant publication. There’s no denying the important social contribution that it is making. We are long-standing supporters of the paper and are proud to be associated with the charity’s work,” Morgan began.
“One of our Smiley Vans will bring many benefits. Apart from making it easier to distribute the paper, the fully branded vehicle will raise awareness about All Together NOW! and will attract even more supporters.”
Tom Dowling, the paper’s editor who left the Liverpool Echo to start the paper, commented: “This is another tremendous boost. Earlier this year Liverpool CCG NHS Trust teamed up with us to get the paper into all of the city’s health venues. Now to be given a new delivery vehicle from The Morgan Foundation is just fantastic. It’s going to really raise our profile in the region.”
His experience in editing includes work on behalf of the European Commission, the Financial Conduct Authority, and numerous county councils. He has worked extensively for Plain Language Commission.
