Raising Money to Buy Wool

From the Bucks Herald, 19th December 1914. 

WADDESDON WESLEY GUILD. --An entertainment arranged by the Guild was given in the Wesleyan Sunday School on Thursday evening, Dec. 10.  A good number attended, who highly appreciated the excellent programme given by the girls.  The object of the entertainment was to raise more money to buy wool for knitting soldiers' comforts, in which work the girls have been engaged for some time.  The programme commenced with the National Anthems of the Allies, very nicely sung by a few young girls.  Glees, solos, recitations, and patriotic songs followed, amongst them favourites being "Land of hope and glory," and "Be proud that you're fighting for England."  The programme concluded with an amusing sketch "Mistresses and maids." — The Chairman, Mr. Holland, thanked all who had taken part, especially Mrs. Rushton for training the girls and Miss Newman for accompanying.  The amount raised was £1:2:8, and 10s. 6d. is to be sent to the "Daily Telegraph" Glove and Mitten fund, the remainder to be spent in wool.
