LORD MAYOR'S DISTRESS FUND
FOR VICTIMS OF RECENT HURRICANES AND FLOODS IN
Appeal to the people of the Windward islands by
His Exccllency the Acting Governor
You will by now have heard of the immense devastation which has
taken place on the East Coast of England as a result of a recent hurricane
and flooding. No less than 300 people have lost their lives, many others
are missing and 800 are homeless. The Prime Minister has declared that it
is a national responsibility and the Lord Mayor of London has opened a
." Distress Fund. "
Many persons in these islands know of the help which have been given
by the United Kingdom to Jamaica and Antigua in similar circumstances
recently and to all of us in different ways and many may wish to help the
families of those who have been bereft, if only as a gesture of the ties
which bind us, and I am therefore asking that you should contribute
something however small to a Windward Islands appeal to assist the Lord
He gives twice who gives quickly ".
As this appeal will be closed on February 28th, contributions should be
made to Barclays Bank. Cheques should be clearly marked Lord Mayor's
Distress Fund. "
