Tibet Society

UK society that campaigns for free Tibet

Between July 1964 and January 1965 Miss Tankard purchased a group of objects from the Tibet Society that were being sold by the society for recent Tibetan refugees. The Tibet Society UK was the world’s first ever Tibet support group. It was founded in 1959, within weeks of the flight of the Dalai Lama from Tibet and it remains a strong campaign group. Hugh Richardson a collector who donated to Liverpool Museum was a founding member of this organisation.
