Donations sort for professional Oral history Voice recorder

To improve my work in collecting oral histories in Birmingham, I would like to get a professional voice recorder. At the moment I am using simple cheap digital voice recorders. They record oral histories but the sound quality is not very good. I am seeking voluntary donations to fund a professional voice recorder. If you can donate some money through PAYPAL then please use the button below. You don’t need a Paypal account to use the service. If you can’t use either but would still like to donate then please leave a comment and I will get back in touch. Thank you for your support and keep on enjoying the ‘Voices of Birmingham’ projects.

I am aiming for a  Marantz PMD661 which will cost £450

So far I have £29.50

Thanks for donations go to
