We’re thrilled to be working in partnership with the Premier League stars at Chelsea FC, and local favourites Harwich & Parkeston FC, to enable young people to attend a FREE football event this spring.
On Saturday 27 April 2019 young people can join us to learn new football skills, meet new people, and explore this history.
Saved...Football Welcomes the Kindertransport is for 11 to 14 year olds – and will see expert football coaching and education from the Chelsea FC Foundation.

All participants will also gain free entry into the match that day between Harwich & Parkeston FC and Burnham Ramblers. And there’s a fantastic football goody bag for all those taking part!
This year marks the 80th anniversary since the arrival of almost 10,000 Jewish children to Britain from Europe to escape the Nazi’s, and the Surrender & Sanctuary Project is championing Harwich’s role as the first point of contact for these young people.
The story of the children’s arrival featured in The Picture Post and celebrated photo journalist Kurt Hutton came to Harwich to capture the children playing football, and we will have our special SAVED Kurt Hutton photography and football exhibition on display.
Inspired by these images the Harwich Haven team have put together this fantastic football event for young people, and under 16s can come to see the Senior match at Harwich & Parkeston FC at 3pm for free!
