Lenin 100: Dimitrov's Coat Appeal

You are here

Back to top

This coat tells a fascinating story (see below) – featuring Lenin, Pollitt, Dimitrov and international brigader Sam Russell! - but as it reaches its 100th birthday, it is in urgent need of repair.

Your donation will fund its professional conservation and display case, so we can tell this story for generations to come.

As we mark the centenary of Lenin’s death in 2024, why not gift a donation to this wonderful artefact?

£3,000 will enable us to preserve, repair and re-mount the coat, protecting it from future degradation.

Without funding we will have to put it into storage to protect it from further damage.

As MML continues to work broadening its audiences and promoting its displays, we want this coat and its story centre stage. Can you help make a difference?

Personal Information
Gift Aid Declaration
I am a UK taxpayer and I would like the Marx Memorial Library to treat this donation and any donations I make in the future and have made in the past 4 years as Gift Aid donations, until I notify you otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and / or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I understand that Marx Memorial Library will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give. Gift Aid is reclaimed by Marx Memorial Library from the tax I pay for the current tax year. Please let us know if your tax circumstances or name and address details change so we can amend our records.
