£520raised of £500 target by 68 supporters

    Weʼve raised £520 to rescue a monster collection of old archived press photographs sold off by a local newspaper and at risk of being lost for good !

    What is crowdfunding?

    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.


    I'm watching a collection of discarded old press images possibly totalling as many as 100,000 about to be scattered far and wide via a distant junk-dealer. They are images of Peterborough and Peterborough people and Peterborough sporting teams and I want to save these, bring them home and share them online for all to enjoy.

    Its a lot of money but I'm gambling on these being well worth saving and I appreciate any support you can offer.
