The IBMT’s national memorial and sculpture by Ian Walters is in Jubilee Gardens, near Waterloo Station in London SE1, and it needs your help!

We were alerted by the Jubilee Gardens staff in December last year to damage to the grouting on the base of the memorial – it’s probably wear and tear but we need to get it repaired to avoid any further deterioration – and preferably before our annual commemoration on Saturday 6 July 2024.

Grout in need of repair on the national memorial in Jubilee Gardens.

We have a quotation for the work – £1,980 – so can you help? Can you donate, say, £20? Or more of course!

We will publish the names of everyone who responds to this appeal unless they wish to remain anonymous.

There are more than 100 memorials to the volunteers in Britain and Ireland, but the national memorial is the only one that commemorates all the 526 men and women who were killed in the Spanish Civil War.

Erected in 1985, the memorial is an important piece of public art and a fitting tribute to the International Brigades. Please help us preserve it.

We welcome donations by cheque, sent to 37a Clerkenwell Green, London EC1R 0DU, or by PayPal, adding the code NatMem in the note box.
