Appeal to RSA for orphanage


Major Winton and Staff Captain Marshall, of the Salvation Army, waited on the monthly meeting of the Dunedin Returned Soldiers’ Associatio­n with a view to placing before the members a scheme to raise funds to build a Salvation Army orphanage at Andersons Bay and enlisting the sympathy and help of the Returned Soldiers’ Associatio­n. He pointed out that the Salvation Army had devoted itself to the needs of soldiers during the war, and in consequenc­e their funds for ordinary work had been impoverish­ed. He now asked that the returned men should prove their appreciati­on of what had been done, and help the army. The estimated cost of the orphanage was about £10,000, and of that amount they had £2000 in hand.
