Friends of Island Echo

Love Island Echo? Find the news interesting or helpful? Become a friend and help fund local news…

Island Echo is a small, locally-owned and truly independent business based in Ryde. Although we work to a tight budget with limited resources, we provide a leading 24 hour news service that engages Islanders from all walks of life.

If everyone who reads our news helps in some way to fund it, we can re-invest the money to introduce new features and expand our resource base to cover more news than ever before. Or… simply buy us a coffee on those long nights as we strive to deliver news as it happens.

You can support Island Echo by contributing as little as just £2 each month. Help keep local news… local!


We process secure payments through PayPal – you can use your debit/credit card or Paypal account.

Other ways to support us:

1. Tip us off about news as it happens by emailing [email protected]

2. Offer your writing skills – submit articles, opinion pieces and press releases

3. Offer your photography skills – submit your photographs for use on Island Echo
