Endeavour and Pudsey Bear

Endeavour cropped up in a section of a special Children In Need show called Pudsey's Quest, broadcast to an audience of children at Basildon's Towngate Theatre.

From the sea defences outside Osbourne's, Finlay Marshall gave Pudsey an excellent potted history of Endeavour and her part in the Dunkirk evacuations, rescues from Canvey during the '53 floods and up to her rediscovery and restoration by the Trust.

There are lots of lovely shots of the boat on the Estuary, so well worth setting the screen to maximum size!

The Leigh-on-Sea Endeavour Trust would like to thank Mark Hardie at BBC Essex and BBC Children in Need for their permission to use this section of their show on our website.
