National newspapers offer £1m worth of free advertising to green charities

Two national newspapers are offering £1m worth of free advertising to green charities and SMEs.

The advertising is being offered by News UK through its Times Earth Ad Fund across its Times and Sunday Times publications as well as via Times Radio.

The fund is targeted at sustainability and environmental charities of any size, as well as SMEs with no more than 25 employees and a turnover under £5m.

It is expected that five awards offering £200,000 worth of advertising via Times publications will be made.

“Sustainability is a key topic of interest for Times and Sunday Times readers and our titles and broadcasting platforms are uniquely placed to educate and motivate readers, with an authoritative voice to shape the future,” said News UK Chief Commercial Officer Dominic Carter.

“The Times Earth Ad Fund is a big opportunity for sustainability SMEs and charities to reach a highly influential audience with their products and causes and help to drive the sustainability agenda.”

Applications close at midnight on November 14.

The fund has been launched to coincide with the COP26 climate change summit.
