The Needlework Committee of the above League have sent 20 shirts and 10 pairs of socks to General Markham, at Farnborough, in answer to his appeal in one of the daily papers for shirts and socks for his soldiers. Mrs. Worsfold has sent off several large parcels of children’s and women’s clothes to the Belgian refugees, collected and made by members of the Women’s League of Service. The children of the Upper Mitcham Girls’ School have collected a large bundle of old clothes, 114 garments for the Belgian refugees. The girls washed and mended the clothes at the school, under the supervision of Miss Beddoe, the headmistress.
