Comments about this page

  • I am afraid I cannot supply any names to the above photographs but I do know a little about similar events which were held in the Chesterfield area. Each year the churches sold ‘Sunny Smiles’ to raise money for ‘The National Children’s Homes’. They were small booklets containing photographs of children’s smiling faces. You made a donation and the picture was given to you. I was a Sunday school queen in 1960s and there was an annual event when each church’s queen handed the money over. Entertainment was usually provided. It was Harry Corbett with ‘Sooty’ when it was my turn.
