Daughter of Liverpool legend launches crowdfunder to build archive of fans’ memories
According to a report by Liverpool Echo, the daughter of Liverpool legend Jimmy Case has initiated a crowdfunded project to build a community archive consisting of pictures of stories of the Reds fans.
Emma Case, whose father played as a midfielder back in the day, wants to create an archive that’s a homage to the memories of Liverpool fans and their experiences while following and supporting the club (h/t Liverpool Echo). The report adds that she hopes it will help the Merseyside’s more vulnerable citizens as well.
Titled the RED Project, as per the report, Case is aiming to collect pictures from fans young and old – as well as sharing their experiences via podcasts, exhibitions, events and books.
This does sound like an excellent interactive venture to celebrate our glorious past. It would also provide younger fans with a clearer picture of our traditions and values as a club.
Liverpool Echo further explains that the crowdfunded project would need about £23,000 to transform a vintage caravan from 1969 into a mobile exhibition hub. The remodelled vehicle would then travel to match days, community centres around the city, opening its doors for fans to share their memorabilia and stories.
Emma, who is a professional photographer, also added that the project is community-driven and is more about the fans even though it is built around football.

Our performances on the field haven’t been the best lately. We’ve slumped to consecutive defeats and even bowed out of the FA Cup. We are still the champions-elect with a massive lead at the top of the table but we must be wary of slip-ups. That said, let’s hope this project achieves everything that Emma and her team are working on.
