The collection of ?purses? by Royalty was a major feature of YMCA fund raising and took place several times in Cheltenham, the recipients being Princess Helena Victoria in 1923 and 1925, Queen Mary here in 1942 and the Princess Royal a decade later in 1952. Seen above is Mrs. Irene James handing over a purse on behalf of the YMCA Women?s Auxiliary. In the background from the left are the Town Clerk, Frank Littlewood (in wig) the Mayor, Wilfred Waite (hidden), former Mayor, Daniel Lipson, and the Mayoress, Phyllis Waite.
