THE 1930s

Work increased for the Charity in the immediate aftermath of the war and then again during the economic crisis of the 1930s when British workers and their families were hit hard by the loss of jobs in all sectors. The trustees placed an urgent and successful appeal in the Daily Mail in 1936 to alleviate growing pressure on the BCF.
