Essex foundry Sculpture Services in process of casting the statue in bronze

First figure cast in bronze
Harwich Mayor Ivan Henderson visited the bronze foundry yesterday, to see the work in progress on the memorial statue. 

It depicts five children descending from a ship’s gangplank with moving quotes from Kinder which will be carved into the bronze.

Major Donation Announcement

We are grateful for the generous donations given recently by two Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts: The Linbury Trust and The The Alan & Babette Sainsbury Charitable Fund.  
In 1939, Alan Sainsbury, later Lord Sainsbury, stood as guarantor to 21 children. Among other contributions, he paid for a house in Putney where the children stayed for the first three months, learned English and made their first acquaintance of English society.
