Appeal on behalf of the Italian Hospital in London by Gilbert Harding
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Italian Hospital in London was founded in 1884, primarily for the treatment of Italians in Great Britain, and afterwards persons of any nationality or creed. Since its foundation, the hospital has treated over 35,000 In-Patients and 330,000 Out-Patients. These have been drawn from every country in the world, thus substantiating the hospital's claim to be truly international.
In 1956 the hospital needs to raise more than £ 11,000 from voluntary sources, in order to carry on its work.
