    Hi folks,

    I have volunteered some time to help www.barretstown.org as they have a darkroom but no one to show the kids how to print and very little equipment.

    So I'm looking for any of the following which you might be able to donate.

    Any compact film camera
    B&W 35mm film, out of date is fine
    Film developing tanks
    Film reels
    Mixing jugs etc.

    Thanks,
    Peter

    I think I have a 35mm camera knocking around that I can give you. It was given to me by a relation ages ago. It might even be fully automatic if that matters?

    That would be great, thanks. Was thinking automatic compact cameras would be the handiest for kids but I'll even take slr's for older kids if any are being offered.

    I know it's not a SLR for sure. It's one of those look a like jobs. When do you need it for Peter?

    Hi Fran, I only want to take gear that people are not using any more and are happy to donate. So if that's the case we'll be delighted to take your Minolta.

    Sure Peter,

    When do you need it - should I post it on to you or something maybe?
