Appeal on behalf of Woodlarks Workshop Trust, by Derek McCulloch O.B.E. ,
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Woodlarks is a residential workshop for chair-bound crippled women who cannot walk but who have strong hands and a desire for independence. It trains them to make wooden toys, employs them in the workshop after training, and gives them a permanent home.
The success of the scheme, begun in a small way in 1949, soon demanded extension. A new house has recently been built, providing living accommodation for thirty and bedrooms for seven, and this will continue to be the centre of the community as it grows. More than £ 5,000 is urgently needed to pay for the new building and its equipment.

8-' Tom Pinch Seeks his Fortune in London'
Charity, incensed by her sister's marriage to Jonas and suspecting her father of wishing to marry Mary Graham , leaves home to live in London with Mrs. Todgers, where Mr. Moddle, sadly affected by Mercy's marriage to Another, proposes to her. Meanwhile
Mr. Pecksniff, who appears to be gaining complete control over Mr. Chuzzlewit, takes the old man and Mary Graham to live with him. He forces his attentions on Mary and after proposing to her blackmails her to silence by threatening to use his influence over the old man to Martin's further disadvantage. In her distress, Mary confides in Tom, who is forced to realise Pecksniff's hypocrisy. Mr. Pecksniff is an eavesdropper at this conversation.
Far away in America, Martin and Mark only just survive the rigours of the Valley of Eden; with assistance they are able to return to New York and from there set sail for England.
Old Martin Chuzzlewit:

' Poeme du Quinquina ' by Naomi Lewis
Produced by Eileen Capel
Every year malaria attacks hundreds of millions of people. For centuries, men of many nationalities have searched for remedies. Explorers and botanists sought the bark of a South American tree which, they suspected, contained the secret of a cure. The secret discovered, the bark was then cultivated in many countries of the East; and now laboratories all over the world are producing synthetic substitutes for the bark.
