£325raised of £200 target by 30 supporters

    Weʼve raised £325 to pay for scans of 3000 of Colin Forward's 1970s-1990s negatives to post on the Malmesbury Now and Then Facebook page.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


    During the 1970s-1990s, Colin Forward, took thousands of photos of Malmesbury people, places and events. Colin died in 2001, and his boxes of negatives lay untouched until earlier this year. Wondering what was in them, I had 3000 scanned, and started posting them on the Malmesbury Now and Then Facebook page. The reaction was astonishing: Malmesbury people, some now living far away, have been delighted and fascinated by the memories they have brought back, of people they used to know, good times they once had, and how they and their family and friends used to look. There are still an estimated 10,000 negatives left, and despite the fact that I have been given a very preferential rate of £200 per 3000 scans, I can't afford to pay to have them all scanned myself, so I am asking you if you can help by contributing something to the cost of the next batch of scans. Thank you!

      Wow! We've reached our target only 7 hours in! Thank you to everyone who has contributed - now I can go ahead and order 3000 more scans. But I still have an estimated 10,000 negatives, so if anyone wants to contribute to scanning the other 7000, that would be brilliant!
