Save Press Gazette archive from the skip

Publishing company Wilmington who this week announced the closure of Press Gazette wants rid of the magazine's archive of bound volumes which offer a unique history of British journalism going back 43 years.
It is understood that Wilmington has been trying to offload the archive, which consists of around 100 bound volumes and dates back to the first issue of UK Press Gazette when it was launched by Fleet Street editor Colin Valdar, for several months.
Most of the archive is not on the internet and will be lost if it cannot be found a home. It would be ideal for a university, especially a journalism department, or library.
If anyone is interested in saving this unique archive email me at and I will pass it on to Wilmington.
