Hazel Grove & Offerton Sick Nursing Association

Clearly prior to 1945, I'm posting this because (a) some prople might be interested in it and (b) somebody might be able to tell me something about it.

It's the label on a small collecting box and the partly removed label on the bottom mentions the collectors - Mrs Baldwin and Mrs Bruce.

"Sick Nursing Associations
The origin of Sick Nursing Associations was in 1887 when Queen Victoria's Jubilee Institute for Nurses was founded with the object of providing skilled nursing for the sick poor in their own homes. Subsequently, many provincial sick nursing associations were established that were affiliated to the Jubilee Institute for Nurses."

Thanks for that Stan. Thinking about it, it also has my grandmotherís married name on the other label so it must be post 1925. That puts it within a 20 year period (1925-1945).
