Bonzo Dog Band Footage Preservation

Recently quite some footage has been found of the Bonzo Dog Band. This footage is on six rolls of 16mm film. At this moment one roll of film has been digitized and from this it could be established that it’s a colour insert for the previously long lost Bonzo Dog Band episode of Colour Me Pop. The picture and sound quality is excellent. Screencaps have already been published on my DooDahForNow, the Bonzo Dog Band and Vivian Stanshall fan-page on Facebook that  you can find here:

The footage is currently being held at Kaleidoscope, a non-profit company. A black & white copy of the complete Colour Me Pop program has also been found. This footage needs restoration work before it can be cleaned and digitized and Kaleidoscope doesn't really have the funds to do this at present.
For obvious reasons it's essential that this and the other Bonzo Dog Band material will be preserved for the future and for this Kaleidoscope needs money, as their funds are already stretched across many projects, I feel that we are able to help them.
The amount needed for the project is £ 750,-. This amounts to about € 950,- and includes restoration and digitizing. GoFundMe will take 5% so including some extra room for exchange costs from £ to €, a final needed amount would come to about € 1050,-.
Although no final decision have been made there are currently discussions to show all the found Bonzo Dog Band footage at a special event to be held in the UK. In case the needed final amount will be exceeded, the additional funds will go towards this event.
