CHRISTMAS AT THE INFIRMARY: MATRONS APPEAL
Dear Sir,- May I, through the medium of your column, appeal to our numerous kind friends on behalf of those patients who will be compelled to send their Christmas in the Infirmary. Any festivity must of necessity be of a modified nature, but we should be glad if those who are away from home may have some suitable gift, and any contributions in money, clothing, cakes etc. will be welcome, and shall be gratefully acknowledged.
MARY HERBERT, MATRON.
Worcester General Infirmary
Reference was made at the City Council meeting on Tuesday to the fact that a citizen overcame the licensing restrictions (which prevent any spirits being bought for out-door consumption during the weekend) by motoring to Malvern, which is not a scheduled area, and bringing home a supply.
