Weʼre raising £5,000 to contribute to the creation of a statue, to commemorate the unaccompanied children of the Kindertransport.
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Kindertransport Memorial Project
Harwich played a crucial role in caring for these children, however there are few reminders in the town, except for two plaques and an exhibition in our Napoleonic Fort.
The Port of Harwich was the main entry point for most of the 9,300 children who came to Britain. Many hundreds of them spent their first weeks at The Dovercourt Holiday Camp, just two miles from the town, no longer in existence. A Memorial Statue would provide a powerful focal point on the quay for visitors to Harwich and local townspeople wishing to commemorate the Kindertransport.

A much needed reminder to all of us that refugees are in as desperate need today as they have always been.
