The purpose of the Charity was to provide Country Holidays for poor children – to get children brought up in the city out to the countryside for some recreation and fresh air.  The children came from schools mainly in the East End of London, including the Jews Free School, the Spanish and Portuguese School, Stepney Jewish School, and schools in Rutland St., Berner St., Chicksand St., etc.  There is a list on the last page.
