THE K SISTERS COT

ADDED 20 JULY 2006

Knottingley K Sisters plaque

The above photograph shows a plaque currently displayed
on the ‘archive wall’ at Pontefract General Infirmary.

There have been several mentions of the K Sisters in previous issues of the Digest and I thought you might be interested in one more.

I am sure that the cot ‘endowed in perpetuity’ has long since gone but thankfully the plaque has survived and I hope this knowledge will give some pleasure to Marjorie and Pamela.

I wonder what would be today’s equivalent of £500, a not insignificant sum in 1945?

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.
