Story

The National Museum of Computing (TNMOC) located on Bletchley Park is creating a completely new gallery for its most famous exhibit: the rebuild of Colossus, the world's first electronic, programmable computer.

 

As a trustee and the Acting Chair of TNMOC, I am fundraising to help create a marvellous new gallery for this world class exhibit.

 

The new TNMOC gallery in historic Block H is on the spot where Colossus No 9 stood during the war and where the rebuild led by the late Tony Sale  took place.  It is designed to be a fitting tribute to the wartime code-breakers and an inspiration to future generations of computer scientists and engineers.

 

Last year a Just Giving page in memory of Tony Sale launched the new Gallery fundraising.  Donations so far made have enabled the infrastructure work to begin. Now we are focusing on raising funds to provide exciting and interactive gallery displays to explain the extraordinary role of Colossus during the war and its place in computing history.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
