Appeal on behalf of Reed's School by Miss K. E. H. Mills
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
For 140 years Reed's School has been caring for fatherless boys and girls. This boarding grammar school does much for tlhose deprived of a father's influence and, with the children away in term time, it is often possible for their mothers to take up employment to augment slenderresources. Though Local Authont cs sometimes arrange to send childrento boarding schools they can only do this s on a limited scale, and Reed's School takes children who cannot get help elsewhere.
Many of the children's fathers were killed while on war service or as a result of air raids. Where the mothersare receiving pension allowances, these are paid to 'the School, and in additon each ma'her contributes according to her means.
The School takes an interest in welfare and gives great assistance in the choosing of careers. A large sum is needed each year to carry out this valuable work of preparing children to become good Citizens.
