AN OUTSTANDING YEAR
The results of last year’s Sing were really outstanding, and as you will see from the Balance Sheet a sum of £110 was distributed to various charities—a few of them new ones to receive a grant from Longwood Sing. This pleasing result was only made possible by your continued support, and once again this year the Committee trust that you will continue to support them in their work in providing a little extra comfort for some of our less fortunate friends.
The Officers and Committee wish to thank all those good people who worked and gave to make our Sing a success in 1959, and earnestly solicit your undiminished support again this year.
R. MASSEY, Hon. Secretary.
