Appeal on behalf of the Hampshire and Dorset Babies' Home, by Miss E. D. Fenwick
This Home was founded in 1916 for fatherless babies whose mothers have to work, and it now looks after 23 children from a fortnight old till they are two. The Home also trains educated girls as children's nurses, giving them eighteen months' tuition in all branches of nursery management.
At the present time the particular need of the Home is for warm clothes for the babies during the winter months. An Appeal which was broadcast from this station some time back resulted in a considerable quantity of warm clothing being provided for the Home, but fresh supplies are now beginning to be urgently needed.
All contributions or gifts of babies' clothing should be sent to [address removed]
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
