Thalatta and Barnado’s

In 1981 Barnado’s booked Thalatta for 15 weeks of the 29 week season. The relationship with the children’s charity continued until the end of 1988. During those years hundreds of children from the Barnado’s homes came away on the barge. In the photo is a young crew member from Knotley Hall, a Barnado’s home for boys, in Kent.
