The ‘Love Pompey, Love PompeyHistory‘ fanfunding campaign launched in September has exceeded the £300 target required thanks to the generosity of Pompey fans.
The FA Cup 2008 memorabilia will now be used for future Pompey History events with £300 being used by Pompey fans David & Mo Vine to benefit Puwakdeniya primary school in Sri Lanka when they visit in November.
The surplus raised of £25 will be put towards future purchases of other Pompey related memorabilia so that it can also be displayed at future events and longer term become part of a Portsmouth FC museum.
