Gratitude for being saved from overwhelming peril

Earley churchgoers gave generously towards the war memorial.

The Vicar has received two munificent gifts of £100 and £50 towards the expense of the porch of remembrance of those who from this parish went out and laid down their lives in the war. The gifts in both cases are anonymous, and one of the donors expressed a hope that the parishioners would give liberally and be thankful for the opportunity of shewing their gratitude for being saved from overwhelming peril. With such a lead it is not too much to expect an outpouring of offerings from all whose hearts are touched with thankfulness, and that the work may immediately be put in hand.
