Weʼre raising £4,000 to Upgrade Canvey Community Archive's Website
- Canvey Island, Essex
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Canvey Community Archive’s website http://www.canveyisland.org/category/index.aspx is nearly 11 years old (a long time in internet years) and is beginning to look its age. We are an award winning site with over 5000 pages of Canvey Island’s history. We would very much like to upgrade it to a modern clean and easy to use website fit to take us into the future. The site is maintained and hosted by Community Sites but if anything happened to them no one else knows how to sort the current site and it will disappear. Many of CS’s other sites have now changed to a different format used by many internet providers if we followed suit we would be making our site more future proof.
Unfortunately most grant funders do not consider this to be a very good investment for their funds. So we are appealing to all our friends out there who have used and enjoyed our site to help just a little towards the cost of upgrading. If you all just donated £5 we could easily hit our target.
Come on Canveyites help us go forward to a bright new future.

Thank you to those who have already donated. We still have a long way to go. Just a few pounds is all we ask. We cannot do this without your help. The archive has thousands of photos and stories from Canvey's past with more to come. Found and published by volunteers who work very hard to bring them to you. We want them to be seen by future generations. Help us save Canvey's History.

Hi, I am fairly new to Canvey, my wife and I purchased 7 Oxford Road in 2015 and are in the process of restoring/renovating the property. We are both interested in local history, I hope this helps.
