They are fundraising - and, from what I hear, are well short of the target needed to get the project off the ground.  The British Library project may get there first.

How are they going about this and publicising it?

I'm pretty sure the lack of support has led to them giving up the idea.

I never even knew they were fundraising until I saw your post here.  I would have supported it if I'd known. It should have been better publicised.

Three years (1870-1872) have very recently appeared on the British Newspaper Archive site.

Yipee!
