HOME FOR SICK CHILDREN.
To the Editor of the Redcar and Saltburn by the
Sir, Two months ago you kindly published formally an appeal in behalf of a “Home for Sick Children,” which we hoped to be able shortly to open. That appeal has been most generally answered, as a list. I enclose will show, enabling us at once to furnish warm ward with for beds for children, a sister’s room, and partly the kitchen. Though still unfinished and incomplete, the Home is now opened for the reception of children of all denominations recovering from illness (not infections) from infancy to the age of fourteen. The charge for each child is 5s, a week quite irrespective of subscription all recommendation. Though a subscribers application will have the preference to a vacancy when it occurs. Subscriptions and donations hope will cover the expense of cases in which the weekly payment is impossible. We have warm little boy in in Melbourne, for whom no payment is made. The supervision and nursing of the Home is under the “Sisters of the Holy Rood” from the Cottage Hospital, Middlesbro’, from whence children will be sent to convalesce when desirable. We hope soon to have ready in another ward (for which we still need the cots) so as to receive 10 children in all. Gifts in kind, clothing, furniture, donations and subscriptions will be thankfully received by the “Sister in Charge,” Cottage Hospital Home for Sick Children, Coatham, Redcar; all by Mrs. Bewicke Bewicke, Coulby Manor, Middlesbro’
