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 300 people have visited us and left comments. Many people had never heard of the work of The Homes.
The Exhibition at the Birmingham and Midland Institute finished on Sept 22nd but the main panels are now installed in St Martin’s in the Bullring Church and will stay there for four weeks.
