An appeal on behalf of Personal Service Work in Kent, by Mrs. Granville Streatfield, C.B.E.
This vital work was started experimentally eighteen years ago by the Kent Council of Social Service as an attempt to deal with the many cases of individual distress throughout the county. Its primary concern is to meet the needs of families and individuals who, through sickness or other misfortune, are unfitted to face the normal conditions of life.
They are recommended by Public Assistance Committees, the Charity Organisation Society, professional and Service charities, hospitals, the clergy, doctors, and private people. Already over 700 cases have been helped, either by the obtaining of institutional treatment, by the giving of temporary assistance, by providing training, by the finding of employment, or by the visiting of the sick.
But only the fringe has been touched, and the necessary expansion is pressing.
A comparatively small area in North-West Kent, where the population has increased by over 100,000 in the last four years, presents a problem that is in itself sufficiently serious. It is to meet the urgent claims here and throughout Kent for the individual who cannot help himself, that Mrs. Granville Streatfield, vice-chairman of the Kent Council of Social Service, is to make tonight's appeal.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Mrs. Granville Streatfield, C.B.E., [address removed].

With Clifford Collinson , famous travel talker as guide, we take you on a musical World Tour
Opening with music descriptive of the ship slowly moving away from the dock, you soon hear 'La Paloma' (Spanish), ' Madelon ' (French), ' Tirritomba ' and ' La Danza' (Italian); authentic Arabian melodies including ' Call from the Muezzin ' and ' Dance of the Dervishes ' ; Hindu melodies, and music from Cambodia, Siam, and Java ; Chinese Temple music, a Wedding March, a Funeral March, a Chinese Love Song ; then to Mexico for ' La Cucaracha ', and to the Southern States of North America for old Plantation Songs and Spirituals. An extract from the ' Rhapsody in Blue' leads to a pot-pourri of Sousa marches, with a short coda founded, on ' God Save the King' and the notes BBC to close.
In order to obtain the characteristic sounds in the oriental music, the orchestra includes Mandoline, Guitar, Zither, Banjo, Cymbalom, Celesta, and many unusual percussion instruments.
