'Save Barnardo's photographic archive: Find a new home for the original photographs'

from a recent e mail I got.

'Save Barnardo's photographic archive: Find a new home for the original photographs' 

The Newspaper 'The Third Sector' has published an article in which Barnardos has commented publicly for the first time. http://www.thirdsector.co.uk/news/1192660/fears-circulate-barnardos-photo-archive-destroyed/ ... It says it is 'confident it will find a destination for 500,000 historic photos' ... but this falls short of saying it 'has' or 'it will' this was sourced from Michael Pritchard's British Photographic History Blog where he also makes some interesting observations on the process see http://britishphotohistory.ning.com/profiles/blogs/barnardo-s-archive-up-for-grabs?commentId=2680769%3AComment%3A74024&xg_source=msg_com_blogpost - if you know any influential people or politicians who may be able to influence an outcome I am looking for someone to present the petition which now has over 900 signatures!!!

take care and God Bless
