Endeavour Colouring Book

The following article was published in the Leigh Times: The Leigh-on-Sea Endeavour Trust is a charity established to ensure that Leigh's very own Dunkirk Little Ship, The Endeavour, is maintained to the highest possible order for future generations.

Although the Trust has a variety of sales items, it had been clear for some time that there was a need for something aimed at younger people. It all came together when Paul Gilson, Endeavour's skipper, met Amy Ellen, a young, talented, and local illustrator at the Leigh Town Council Youth Market event in July.

They both saw the potential of designing and producing a children's colouring book about the Endeavour story, and the team immediately set out to scope the project.

The A4 colouring book is now complete and available to buy! It is 28 pages and made up of many illustrations of Endeavour's activities – examples below.

The excellent colouring book can be bought for only £5 from rob@endeavourtrust.co.uk – with free delivery in the Southend area or postage from just £1.50 or call/text 07854610777 for further details.

All the proceeds from our sales go towards the upkeep of Endeavour. She is currently undergoing her yearly maintenance in Leigh Marina, and will be back on her mooring between The Peter Boat and Osborne's in the spring.

The Endeavour Trust has been very impressed with the professional work that Amy has produced and we hope to work with her again in the near future on other projects for the Trust.
