Back in the early 1900s my Nanny Amy, along with thousands of others in London, was really struggling to stay afloat financially. With four young children to look after, things were looking bleak.
One Christmas the Salvation Army came to the rescue and gave Nanny Amy and her family 5 shillings (25p in today’s money!) That kind gift bought the whole family fish and chips and saved them from a very hungry Christmas.
The story still lives on and Nanny Amy never forgot that act of kindness in all her 89 years!
