Appeal: on behalf of the Scottish Old People's Welfare Committee by Lord Mathers

BBC Home Service Scottish

Appeal on behalf of the National Old People's Welfare Council by Stuart Hibberd, M.B.E .
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to Stuart Hibberd, Esq., [address removed]
The National Old People's Welfare Council brings together in one independent, non-political, undenominational body, all voluntary and statutory organisations concerned with the problems of old people. For the past nineteen years the Council has pioneered and promoted many services for the elderly and to this end has directly and indirectly initiated Old People's Welfare Committees throughout the country.
The number of old people in the population has increased steadily and so naturally has the work of the Council, which is a national focal point for information, advice, and practical help. Funds are urgently needed to continue its work.
