Convalescent Home For Working Men

Post by Karen on Sat 23 Jul 2011 - 10:19

At a recent meeting of the committee of the Sea-side Convalescent Home for Working Men (of which the late Mr. Samuel Morley was president), held at the offices, 5, Mitre-court, Temple, under the chairmanship of Mr. Chas. Pizey, the hon. secretary (Mr. Robt. Frewer) reported that the debt of 2,000 pounds on its establishment had now been reduced by 750 pounds. This amount had been raised mainly by working men in their various workshops. He also reported that, to the end of their financial year, four hundred and sixty-seven patients had been received at the institution, making a total since its establishment of over a thousand cases, all of whom had been certified by their honorary medical officers (Drs. Gordon Brown and Appleford) as being convalescent from accident or disease. The committee hope soon to be able to extend the usefulness of the institution. At present the accommodation is inadequate to the number of applicants for admission. The Home, an outcome of the Hospital Saturday movement, is situate at St. Margaret's Bay, Kent, and is of a unique character - being established, supported, and managed by working men, and continues to share their favour and support. The hon. secretary would be glad to receive applications for collection-sheets or boxes from those workshops which have hitherto not collected for this institution.
