Appeal on behalf of the National Association for the Paralysed (registered in accordance with the National Assistance Act, 1948), by Gladys Bird
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The National Association for the Paralysed was founded in 1948 by the Hon. Julian Holland-Hibbert and Patrick Stewart, M.C., both of whom were severely wounded in North Africa. Its aim is to be of service to all paralysed people (of whom there are many thousands) whether ex-service or civilians and whatever the cause of their paralysis.
In the last four and a half years it has helped or solved the problems of nearly 3,000 individuals, and in many other cases has acted as an advisory bureau to hospitals, local authorities, and other voluntary organisations.
Gladys Bird, who was paralysed by a motor accident but who has returned in a wheeled chair to her old job as a school-teacher, is one of those whom the National Association for the Paralysed has helped back into the normal stream of life.
