Good work in Wargrave and district

Time and money for war work sometimes had to be taken away from other charitable endeavours. In Wargrave, those who had formerly knitted socks etc for disadvantaged children and were now knitting and sewing for soldiers, at least gave a monetary gift for the chdren.


The Children’s Union
For the support of Crippled Children Waifs and Strays Society.
Miss Mair begs to thank all the members for what they have so kindly done during the past year. Some members, who owing to the War had no time to work, have sent money instead, this money has been spent in socks and stockings for the crippled children. £3. 19s. 0d has been collected in the boxes – Miss Joan Willis having collected the most. All this has been sent with three parcels containing worked garments and picture books to Head Quarters, and Mrs. Ward Pool begs to send her grateful thanks to the members.
