Yesterday week the annual thanksgiving fête in commemoration of the opening of Dr. Barnardo's Homes (twelve years ago) was celebrated in the enlarged buildings and grounds of the institution in Stepney-causeway, under most favourable circumstances. The institution was besieged with visitors throughout the day. In the evening the Bishop of Bedford addressed a meeting, and made an eloquent appeal for extended support.
