Memorial Concert to be held in honour of Sir Nicholas Winton

Sir Nicholas Winton was known for organising the rescue of 669 Czech children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia during the 9 months before war broke out in 1939.In 2003 he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for Services to Humanity for this work.

On Friday, 20th May, a concert will be held to commemorate the life of Sir Nicholas Winton at St Johns Smith Square. We’re happy to announce that donations from the concert will go to Theirworld.

‘Theirworld is proud and honoured to be continuing the legacy of Sir Nicolas Winton. Gordon and I have always been inspired by his dedication to helping children who are the innocent victims of conflict and disaster, an issue that is sadly as relevant today as it was around the Second World War.’ Sarah Brown, President, Theirworld
