The Lost Children Exhibition Launch

The Lost Children Exhibition was Launched on Friday 13th September

We were delighted to welcome The Vice Lord Lieutenant of the West Midlands , Dr. Beverly Lindsay; the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Councillor Mohammed Azim; and authors, Patricia Roberts- Pichette and Pat Skidmore who flew in specially for the event.. The event was also attended by a number of descendants and relatives of children who were emigrated to Canada by the Middlemore Homes. Most notable of these was Pat Skidmore also from Canada and daughter of a child migrant.

The Exhibition has been a great success. So far over 500 people have visited us  and left comments. Many people had never heard of the work of The Homes.
