An appeal on behalf of THE ST. GILES CHRISTIAN MISSION
AND WHEATLEY'S HOMES by the Rev. R. O. CLACK
For eighty years the St. Giles Christian Mission and Wheatley's Homes has worked in London among the poor, the young, the aged, the erring and the despairing, facing their problems, seeking and finding solutions, giving hope to the hopeless, and a new start in life to the destitute.
The Mission maintains two hostels where first offenders are trained to become useful citizens. These hostels are recognised by the Home Office. Over twelve thousand lads have passed through the Homes aince their inauguration. The Miswon has holiday homes and convalescent homes in the country for tired mothers and their families, an orphanage for children, and quarters for aged people.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to the Rev. R. O. Clack, [address removed]
