PROGRAMME
SIXPENCE
STILL GOING STRONG
One again we present the programme for the annual Longwood Sing, the eighty-sixth, and once again we appeal for your continued generosity to help our fellow humans less fortunate than ourselves. Last year we were able to denote to one or two new charities, and it is only by your giving that this continued effort can be maintained.
The news that Meltham Sing may cease existence at the end of the year is a forcible reminder to us at Longwood that every effort is needed, in face of the ever increasing “made” amusements and pastimes, to carry on the good work. The letters from the various charities who receive donations from this Sing, ;show in no certain manner how much the gifts are appreciated.
Once again thank you for your generosity, and may this year’s Sing exceed all expectations.
R. MASSEY, Hon. Secretary.
The Officers and Committee wish to thank all those good people who worked and gave to make our Sing a success in 1958, vand earnestly solicit your undiminished support again this year.
