More than £6,000 has been raised by campaigners hoping to resurrect a Hull pub and music venue.
The Polar Bear pub on the city's Spring Bank went into administration in July.
It was closed at the same time as the Welly Club, in Beverley Road, as both venues were owned by the VMS group.
The decision to close them came after financial strain caused by the COVID pandemic, said the company.
On Wednesday a crowdfunding campaign was launched with the aim to raise £15,000 to purchase the pub's sound systems, music equipment, and a Polar Bear statue when it goes up for auction next week.
If successful the venue would be run as a community interest company, or non-charitable limited firm, benefiting the community rather than simply making a profit.
