An inspirational presentation about how one man rescued 669 children. This wartime story has captured the imagination of film-makers, writers and TV audiences around the world.

Nick gives a moving account of the desperate plight of families in the run-up to WW11 and how the rescue organised by a London Stockbroker changed so many lives. It is estimated that over 5,000 people are alive today as a direct result of his actions.

This is an uplifting tale and one of the few good news stories from that dreadful period in recent history.

What audiences have said about the presentation is that they, individually, each one of them, recognise how they too can have a profound impact on the people around them from taking action.

The story is even more powerful because the saviour, sometimes referred to as “The British Schindler” is his father, Sir Nicholas Winton MBE.
