“There has been a lot of coverage recently in the media
about the SS Windrush and we have a great story that
we would like to share with you.
In 2006, Tuntum discovered that one of their residents,
Mr William Chong, was an arrivee on the famous
SS Empire Windrush in 1948. Tuntum then arranged
for Mr Chong and his son to travel back to Jamaica
for the first time since 1948.
During the two week trip Mr Chong met the Prime
Minister and Governor General of Jamaica and was
followed by BBC East Midlands journalist, Jeremy Ball,
who gave regular updates on Mr Chong’s trip.
Sadly, Mr Chong passed away in 2014.”
