Mr Thompson, Mrs Jacobs and Form 2V (click to view)

"Dear Mrs Jacobs

On behalf of the Committee and all the Residents of the Bulawayo Shelter, I should like to thank the girls of Form 2V very much for their generous donation of $400.

It is truly encouraging that young people of today should feel moved to assist the less fortunate, and indeed it is only through such help that we are able to survive in these difficult times.

It was a pleasure to meet the class last week - please once again will you pass on to them my sincere gratitude.

Thank you
