Although the women connected with the Overseas Club have ceased to use the depot at the Express Company’* building as a rendezvous for ’doing the necessary sewing and repairing of articles of clothing presented to them, they have not by any means ceased to work in the interests of distressed Britishers and Belgians. The depot is still open to receive donations, and the ladies are finding it more convenient to do the club’s work at their homes. The appeal for clothing is still meeting with a liberal response, and substantial donations are coming to hand. The following donations are gratefully acknowledged ;—Collected at Seacliff (per Mrs Mills), £3; Arthur Street School pupils (per Sirs 0. Speight), £ls. The committee wish to acknowledge their appreciation of the work done by the head master of the school (Mr Barrett) in superintending the collection of the handsome sum mentioned. The Ladies’ Committee will attend at the clnb’a depot (N.Z. Exprse* Company’s buildings) on Friday, and Saturday to receive donations and.attend to packing, etc.
