Join our historic Thomas Coram exhibition tour and walk
Join us for a historic walk and guided tour of our new exhibition, dedicated to the life and times of our founder, the extraordinary Thomas Coram.
Thomas Coram was a man who dedicated his life to helping people, here and abroad, he was, above all, the man who saved children. We'll look at his international work such as establishing Nova Scotia and Georgia, at his fierce advocacy for the education of girls, but most of all at his unwavering commitment to his 'darling project' -- the Foundling Hospital, which continues today as Coram, Britain's oldest children's charity. The tour will be followed by a history walk highlighting the people and places which established the Foundling Hospital as the pioneering charity for children, campaigning then and now for better chances for children. Led by Carol Harris, Coram's Social History Editor.
