Entertainment of Poorhouse Inmates, November 1923

On page seven of The Glasgow Herald, on Thursday the 29th of November 1923, the papers readers were informed that:


“A cheque for £50 7s 10d has been forwarded by Miss Ella Provan, elocutionist, through Mr G. M. Holmes Douglas, honorary secretary, to Mr George Gillie, governor of Barnhill Poorhouse, Glasgow. This money represented the entire proceeds of a recital given by Miss Provan in the Berkeley Hall to provide funds for a Christmas treat to the inmates of the poorhouse. A further sum of £50 has been contributed by members of the Glasgow Royal Exchange for the purpose of providing the inmates with recreation and entertainment.”
