Appeal to the Women of Huddersfield


At a largely-attended women’s meeting at the Town Hall, Huddersfield, on Tuesday, a committee was formed to organise the efforts of the women who are anxious to offer any assistance to the sick and wounded.  It was decided to open a central office at the Guild of Help Rooms, 4, Ramsden Street, to be open daily between the hours of 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. from to-day onwards.

Offers are invited for sewing, knitting, visiting, interpreters, office work, messengers, houses for convalescents, nurses, and gifts of all kinds, viz., money, red flannel for bed jackets, twill for shirts, pillow-cases, towels, and wool for socks.

Funds are urgently requested to buy material, and the smallest contribution will be gratefully acknowledged.
DORIS S. THOMPSON (Deputy Mayoress)


If any of the ladies are in doubt or difficulty with the making of the garments for the sick and wounded, and will come to the Infirmary and ask for the “Sewing Room,” there will always be someone there to give all help possible. - MATRON.
