According to the Retail Price Index, the £500.00 secured by Marjorie and
Pam with the support of the public in 1945 was the equivalent of a
staggering £14,372.81 in 2005. Not only is that a significant achievement on
behalf of Marjorie and Pam it also confirms the generosity of Knottingley
people as we have learned in various accounts throughout the publication
of the Digest magazines and indeed on the Knottingley website. Michael
