SIXPENNY CLOTHING CLUB.
The annual meeting of the Sixpenny Clothing Club was held in the Y.W.O.A. rooms yesterday afternoon. Mrs W. H. Reynolds (president) occupied the chair, and there were about thirty members present. The President said: “In presenting the seventh annual report of the Sixpenny Clothing Club I have to congratulate all those connected with the work on the steady and continued success of the club. During the seven years it has been in existence, the amounts collected have kept up most satisfactorily, notwithstanding that yearly many now associations and church organisations of one kind and another have been started. It will be seen that the funds of the club have fluctuated very little. The collections the first year amounted to L 233 10s, and this year to L 217 14s 9d. It reflects the greatest credit on the zeal and steadiness of the young collectors connected with each branch. The North Dunedin branch has shown a regular and increasing force from year to year, and besides disbursing considerable amounts in charity—coals, boots, and dress material—has given away twenty-one pairs blankets, 197 yds calico, 185 yds flannel, 26yds sheeting, 114 yds shirting, IGyds plaiding, also numerous small items. The middle district keeps very well up, seeing how very much its area has been curtailed, and has distributed during the year, besides, very large quantities of half-worn clothes and miscellaneous articles, 103 pairs boots, 270 yds calico, 179 yds flannel, 180 yds dress material, 44yds Both South Dunedin and Caversham have in like manner dispensed their charitieslargelyandliberally, visiting and investigating all cases with due care and the utmost kindness. The balancesheet will show the financial position of the club.” The balance-sheet was ns follows : Balance from past half-year, LI3 8s Id; subscriptions, L 217 14s 9id ; total, L 231 2s 10Jd. The expenditure amounted to L 224 18s 3d, leaving L 6 4s in hand.
