Heritage Week event at Mendicity

 

On the 25th August we hosted Heritage Week event, entitled ‘The Mendicity Institution, 199 Years – The Story So Far’.

Our Manager, Charles Richards gave an informative talk highlighting the period from its foundation in 1818 until the enactment of the Poor Law in 1840 which was its heyday. Actors from Leeson Park Player performed readings of poetry and personal testimonies dramatizing episodes in our history.
