Burnley's Young Kitchener 15

Thought you might like a copy of this .
It’s Jenny on a visit to Clitheroe - July 8th 1916.
Occasion was a Parade Gala Day for the benefit of Lord Robert’s Memorial Home & St. Dunstan’s Hostel for the Blind. Sum of £300- 10s- 0d was raised .
Clitheroe’s Mayoress later sent Jenny a silver tray with Clitheroe coat of arms on it as thanks for attending the event. ( No doubt she sold it for funds !!!)
