We, the Pushkin Trust deeply regret the death of our beloved Patron and Founder, Sacha, Duchess of Abercorn and offer our sympathy to her husband James, Duke of Abercorn and family.
Sacha will repose at Pushkin House, Baronscourt Estate, so that friends, neighbours and those people whose lives she touched through her visionary work with the Trust might have an opportunity to pay their respects. Pushkin House will be open on Monday 17 December from 12 noon until 3pm and on Tuesday 18 December from 12noon until 7pm. A Memorial Service in thanksgiving for her life will follow at a later date.
‘Nearness of Ice’ – a new book on men from Northern Ireland who took part in the Second World War Arctic Convoys was launched in Belfast on Thursday 8th December. ‘Nearness of Ice’ can be purchased at Waterstones book stores.
“Through Pushkin, children are able to explore their imaginations and stories, helping to unlock their creativity and inspiration. The need for inspirational learning from a young age is vitally important and will help children to engage with their imaginations and find their voice.”
