St. Martin's Christmas Fund Appeal by the Rev. Pat McCormick , D.S.O.
The people whom the Christmas Fund is able to help are chiefly those who have seen better days: the war has hit them very badly as many incomes, already small, have been seriously affected by extra taxation and lower dividends.
The Fund is able to help people all over the British Isles and give them that little extra which makes all the difference to them, especially at Christmas. Most careful enquiries are always made and gifts are never sent unless the recipients are known to the Vicar or to his distributors.
Contributions will be gratefully* acknowledged, and should be addressed to the Rev. Pat McCormick , D.S.O., [address removed].
