Community Trust presented £8000 from the sale of Harry Dolman book

Marina Dolman presented Bristol City Community Trust with profits of the book “Harry Dolman: The Millionaire Inventor Who Became “Mr Bristol City”.

The book which describes how Mr Dolman rose from his humble rural roots in Wiltshire to be a multi-millionaire businessman and inventor is based on previously undiscovered hand written diaries penned by the man nicknamed ‘Mr Bristol City’ himself.

The sale of the book generated a profit of £8000, all of which has generously been donated by Marina Dolman MBE and Bristol Books to the Trust to support their work in the local community.

Marina told the Trust, “I am absolutely thrilled with the response to Harry’s book, and I am extremely pleased to be able to donate the proceeds to support the work of the Bristol City Community Trust.”

Author of the book Martin Powell commented, “It is totally appropriate that the proceeds from sales of the Harry Dolman book should go to the Bristol City Community Trust as Harry was passionate about supporting the local community.

“Keeping the memory of Harry Dolman alive and ensuring all he did for Bristol City and football in Bristol was the main motivation behind the book.”

The book by Martin Powell and Clive Burlton was published by Bristol Books. For further information please click here.
