Appeal for District Nursing Associations
Released: 1930

This short film was originally shown in cinemas all over the country to encourage people to join their local district nursing association, each town or city having its name edited into the title sequence and contact information added at the end. It was introduced by Christopher Stone, a popular BBC radio presenter and household name. ‘For a few coppers a week’ he said, the service ‘offers the biggest bargain I know.’ This particular copy comes from Stoke-on-Trent, courtesy of the Staffordshire Film Archive and the Nursing History Group of North Staffordshire.
