£735raised of £2,000 target by 23 supporters

Weʼre raising £2,000 to Begin the restoration of the 'Joan Dixon' BK92

Beadnell, United Kingdom
Time left
19 days to go

What is crowdfunding?

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


This coble was fished from Beadnell by the Dixon family.

She is currently in a carpark at what used to be Bede's World in Jarrow.

The new owners of the insolvent Bede's World need her moved urgently.

We raised what it will cost to move her back to Beadnell in less than 24hrs.

The fisherman of Beadnell have kindly agreed to let us keep her on the Benty on Harbour Rd whilst a renovation plan is put together, but we are trying to find somewhere more long term for her to be restored.

MUCH more will now be needed to restore her, this fund is just to get things started.

We will be holding a public meeting in January and hopefully formally setting up a club/association to take ownership and start planning the future of BK92
