Appeals: Care International
Saturday 26 February 1994
The photograph shows Mrs Killgallon, who was expecting her ninth child, and six of her children, from left to right: Gerald, 7, June, 12, George, 14, Brian, 1, Michael, 3, and David, 4. Not in the picture were George Killgallon, a stoker for the Ministry of Works, and two more children: Doreen, 10, and Danny, 9. In their box were tins of braised and corned beef, bacon, dried egg powder, jam, milk powder, orange juice, liver pate and margarine, as well as dried apricots, tea, raisins, rice, sugar, dried yeast, flour and bars of soap and chocolate.
Care, which is now an international organisation with a base in Britain, is celebrating its 50th anniversary next year and wants to trace people, like the Killgallons, who remember receiving the parcels after the war, so that they can take part in a special Care event planned for 1995. Care now mainly provides aid to the developing world, working on both emergency relief programmes. For further information, contact: Care International, 36-38 Southampton Street, London WC2E 7HE, telephone 071-379 5247.
