Administrative/Biographical history:

The Children's Country Holidays Fund was set up in 1884 to provide "fresh air for ailing London children" (Annual Report 1884).

Its objective was to give invalid or disadvantaged children visits in the Country within a 50 mile radius of London of not less than 2 weeks. The children were boarded with local "cottagers" who were paid by the society to look after the children, along with a parental contribution.

Local Committees were set up in areas around London to select children felt to be worthy of such holidays.
