Relief of families of soldiers

In the province of Wellington, in March, 1855, for the relief of families of soldiers ordered to the Crimea, £1848 10s 2d was subscribed, £1000 of which was remitted to the English Patriotic Fund, and the balance for the relief of soldiers. The ladies of Wellington, in addition, collected £1000 for providing additional nurses and hospital necessaries for the sick and wounded of the allied armies.
