Appeal on behalf of The Shaftesbury Homes and ' Arethusa ' Training Ship, by the General Secretary, F. Brian Pelly , A.F.C.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The Shaftesbury Homes and ' Arethusa ' Training Ship was founded in 1843 by a solicitor's cierk, and so is one of the oldest children's charities. The first accommodation was a cowshed in Soho; now there are seven hundred children accommodated in four healthy and happy homes tor boys and girls, as well as two hundred and twenty in the training ship ' Arethusa,' in the Medway near Rochester.
Since its foundation, nearly 40,000 children have been admitted to the homes, where they receive a first-class education under the Local Education Authority. They also receive training in various trades so as to become useful citizen:. Many of the old boys and girls have risen to positions of great responsibility in civilian life. Boys who go to the ' Arethusa ' are trained for the sea services and there is abundant evidence that the training they receive helps them quickly to gain promotion at sea. Ninety joined the Royal Navy last year.
The total expenditure of £ 136.000 in 1950 was ninety per cent more than that in 1939, and funds are urgently needed to meet the increased costs.
