There is a gruop and a petition for saving HMS Bristol, after the announcement that the Royal Navy is not going to be using her in any capacity anymore. If you want to take a look and sign to save this one-off warship, veteran of the Falklands conflict, the links are here:

Is there anything the wargaming community might be able to contribute, @Crysantos @MrConway ?? :)

It sounds like a worthy cause, please feel free to promote it on our forums. Unfortunately I don't have the feeling that change.org petitions are usually very effective or impactful, especially in a case like this.

I'd rather have that WG would investigate HMS Whimbrel / Tarik (Black Swan sloop, present at the Japanese surrender and the last Liverpudlian ship that fought the Battle of the Atlantic) and HMS Zenith / El Fateh (Z-class destroyer, also a veteran of WW2), both are rusting away in Egypt.

Or HNLMS Abraham Crijnssen, a minesweeper that escaped from the Japanese camouflaged as an island to continue the war in Australia? This minesweeper is still visitable in Den Helder (NL). image.png.a88ecc25e3f19fae2423b894620993bb.png
