Bcthic.org needs funds to continue its work on the nostalgia website using the old Burnley Express newspaper company negatives for the Burnley and Pendle districts. We have the equipment, but website running costs and rent are needed annually to see it continue to provide a valuable service to the people of the area-past and present.

About the charity

Burnley Civic Trust Making Burnley a Better Place to Live and Work Burnley Civic Trust is run by volunteers who, as is indicated in the Trust's Mission Statement above, wish to preserve the best of what is left of Burnley's past and, also, to promote the best of the new. The Trust exists to ensure that Burnley continues to be a varied, vibrant, historic and interesting town. We welcome any new members to join our open committee meetings. Please remember that we need opinions from all sectors of the Burnley Community about the issues affecting Burnley Residents and views about the built environment and its planning are welcomed. We have a website showing the Images and Stories of the Burnley Express and Local Newspapers of the former East Lancashire Newspapers, negatives given to us when office rationalisation took place. A Heritage Lottery Grant allowed us to acquire our much needed computers, scanners and equipment to enable the Volunteer Group to progress and construct our website now with in excess of 12,000 images and stories. The grant has expired and we need to continue to raise funds to finance the costs of running, updating and expanding the website.
