The B.B.C. Christmas Fund for Children. 'SUNDAY by Sunday throughout the year, the B.B.C. places itself at tho disposal of charities and ' good causes ' of all kinds, who have their ehanco to appeal to the generosity of listeners. Today for once it is appealing for a fund of its own, the proceeds of which will be divided amongst six famous charities working for children; and contributions are to be sent to The Announcer at Savoy Hill.
7.55 (Daventry only) Appeal by the Very Rev. THE
DRAN OF YORK on behalf of York Minster.
S.B. from Leeds rK Mother Church of the Northern Province, York Minster has stood through the centuries-on the site of the holy' well, where King Edwin of Northumbria was baptized by Paulinus 1,:100 years ago. Of purest Gothic architecture throughout, the Minster is the largest Cathedral Church in this country.
But for all its magnificence, the Minster is grievously short of money, not only to pay its salaries and maintain its noble tradition of music and worship, but to keep its fabric in repair. Its outer roofs and stone-work and its windows now need some £50,000 to be spent upon them, and the Dean is hoping that tonight's appeal will enable him to go on with the work that must be done.
Contributions should be sent to the Very Rev. the Dean, [address removed].
