GIFTS TO VALUE OF £1736 Gifts to the value of £1736 were contributed to the "Bites for Britain" campaign in Auckland, according to a statement by the Mayoress, Mrs. Allum, who sponsored the scheme. The money and coupons will be used to purchase rationed foods to be distributed among people in Britain, free of cost and coupons. Mrs. Allum said she had advised the Overseas Gift Food Allocation Centre of the Ministry of Food, London, and the Lord Mayor of London that the gifts would be sent shortly. She had suggested that as far as practicable, the food be made available to elderly people and to nursing mothers. The response to the appeal had been very pleasing, said Mrs. Allum. and she thanked all who had contributed and assisted in the campaign. It had meant a great deal of work for the shopkeepers and those engaged in the correlation of results. The campaign had been publicised in the British press, and a number of appreciative letters had been received. All who had contributed would feel recompensed by the knowledge that they had given pleasure and assistance to the gallant people of Britain.
