Why we fund raise for the museum

The museum trustees are forever grateful for the support given by Charlton Life members and other Addicks in terms of donations and purchases of photos and other items that we sell.

In case you are wondering why we work so hard to raise that money we'd like to give you an example.

This medal is perhaps the most important in the club's history because it is from the very start of the club's existance and it is, to our best knowledge, the only one still in existance.

We have had it on loan but now it has been put up for sale along with a long list of other items from the early history of the club.

The price of the medal alone is £2,000. In total we need £4,200 to secure all the items that include player passes from 1923, a 1924 letter from the supporters club to Scott Kingsley, a 1923 share certificate and a royal box programme (no adverts) from the 1947 cup final.

Selling the Who posters, big thanks to anyone who bought one, and other sales have given us a healthy bank balance but this purchase will make a big dent it that.

So, please buy some more pictures or if you feel you can make a donation, big or small. It is all our history after all.

Thanks

The Museum Trustees

  • Thanks for all the support.

    PS someone LOL'ed fund raising for the museum?
  • Some sad people out there but far outnumbered by generous fans.

    Just checked the bank account and thanks again for the donations big and small
  • Another big payment this morning.

    Charlton fans never let you down.
  • who is selling this medal for £2,000 ?
  • I have hundreds of home and away programmes 1996-2007 and couple from 2007 onwards. Would the museum like them?

    Without sounding rude, thanks but no thanks. Modern programmes we have lots of and they are a really hard sell. Even the 1950s one are hard to sell.

    Appreciate the offer though and if you any other stuff like tickets, scarves, badges, leaflets then there is a good chance we dont have those.

    Thank you.

    Part of the purchase mentioned above was a very good condition copy of the club's first ever handbook from 1921

    Thanks to all the fans who enabled the Museum to buy all these items by buying photos etc and making donations.

    It wouldn't be possible without all your help.

    My first season ticket was for the 68/69 season and cost my mum 30 bob

    Ten and six 47 years earlier sounds a bit expensive

    30 Bob = 30 shillings. A shilling = 5p

    So 30 Bob = £1.50

    Ten and six = 52.5p

    I have an economics degree and work as an analyst. I'm still confused. Think I need a spreadsheet to work this out. ;)

    What a ridiculous system.

    It was but it worked for a few hundred years.

    240 pennies in the pound and 20 shillings in a pound, 12 pence in a shilling.

    The nicknames were better

    Nothing like getting half a crown or if you were really lucky a dollar from an older relative as a kid.

    I used to bet on the horse racing on the tv with JS. Thruppence a race. He let me have the newspaper's nap.
    It was before thruppeny bits meant something quite different to me.
  • Threepenny bits were always my favourites!
  • The handbook aslo contains the oldest written history of the club

    You are a tease, Henry. Where's the rest of the article?
  • We paid a lot for that handbook we're not giving out copies for free @stig :-)

    Actually if anyone wants a copy email the Museum cafchistorian@gmail.com and we'll send a pdf
