We need your help to preserve some of the most fragile and often-used items in our collection on labour movement history.

We hold a full run of Daily Worker and Morning Star newspapers dating back to 1930.

They urgently need to be housed in bespoke sturdy acid free boxes. This will transform their preservation and our ablity to handle the volumes without causing additional damage.

We are asking our friends and supporters to sponsor a box, a year or even a decade and help us preserve this unique piece of history for generations to come.

Why not select a birth date, anniversary, significant year or formative decade?! 

Donors will benefit from

  • a label crediting their support on each of the boxes they sponsor; the memory of your gift will be nestled in the archive stores forever.
  • an invitation to a thank you reception marking our 90th annversary next year

Select your prefered sum below and email with your selected date/year/decade and a note on the name you would like on the dedication label.

Please let us know if your tax circumstances or name and address details change so we can amend our records.
