Digital Specialists Microform Announced as National Sporting Heritage Day Gold Sponsor!


Sporting Heritage are delighted to announce that Wakefield based digital specialists, Microform, have become National Sporting Heritage Day 2023 Gold Sponsors!

With expertise across a range of digitisation, cataloguing and collections management specialisms, Microform have a huge track record of supporting sporting collections to preserve, protect and share the collections for future generations. The partnership will focus on National Sporting Heritage Day and continue until May 2024.

Sporting Heritage Director, Dr Justine Reilly said “This partnership is a huge step forward for Sporting Heritage and the organisations and individuals we represent. Microform can offer so much in terms of knowledge, skills and understanding to ensure sporting collections across the UK are supported with the digitisation and collections support they need. We are particularly delighted that the partnership will allow us to increase this year’s community grants programme and provide even more organisations with the support they need to remove their collections from risk!”.

Microform Sales Manager, Neil Bowker, commented “We are passionate about the nation’s sporting heritage and working together in partnership with Sporting Heritage CIC is a natural step. We’ve worked with so many organisations already to create long-term digital support and tailor what’s needed to each client. We recognise how important it is for collections to access straight-forward knowledge, and we understand how to provide bespoke support as and when it’s needed. We’re excited to be able to work in this way and can’t wait to see which projects we’re able to support through the community grant fund”.

The Sporting Heritage Community Grant programme is now open, and the deadline has been extended to the 7th July in order to allow plenty of time for new applicants who may wish to apply for a Microform digital support grant. To find out more visit:
