Visit : : Coram and The Foundling Museum #drawingonchildhood

We still need your sponsorship for the Cycle to Cannes so if you’d like to know more about the charity, Coram, for who we are raising money then visit the Foundling Museum. There’s lots of exhibits and displays including the #drawingonchildhood illustrations which are beautiful and thought provoking.

The museum tells the rich history of children’s charity Coram, from its beginnings in 1739 as the Foundling Hospital, London’s first home for abandoned children, to the present day.

Through its collections, it charts the work of Captain Thomas Coram who tirelessly campaigned to set up an institution dedicated to the care and education of ‘foundlings’, the children he saw abandoned on London’s streets.
