The Kitchener Memorial Home

The Waifs and Strays Society (now the Children’s Society) planned a special home for the orphaned children left behind by soldiers and sailors. It was built in Hornsey, east London, and opened in 1918.

The Waifs’ and Strays’ Society are holding a Sale of Work on November 15th and 16th at the Portman Rooms, Baker St., W. The proceeds are to be given to the “Kitchener Memorial Home” which the society hopes, when a sufficient sum is raised, to establish for the need of sons of soldiers and sailors who have lost their lives. Any contribution on kind or money will be gratefully received by the Bazaar Secretary, Waifs’ and Strays’ Society, Kennington Road, London S.E.
