Coal not Dole T-shirt - NUM Coal Campaign

  • Description

    Recently Beamish received a fantastic collection of mining objects relating to miners campaigns of the 1980s and 1990s. They were kindly donated by Heather Wood, at the time chairwoman of SEAM (Save Easington Area Mines) who set up a support network to help miners and their families. This began in Easington Colliery but quickly developed into a larger operation as the strike went on. These t-shirts are partly from Heather's own collection and some were donated from other supporters around the country.
