£14,000 for Mersey Charities.
More Homes For Aged Mariners.
A pleasant surprise awaited Captain Goodwin and Mr. Thomas Scott, president and secretary respectively of the Mercantile Marine Service Association, when they attended as guests the Liverpool Rotary Club luncheon at the Exchange Station Hotel, a bequest of £14,000 to the aged mariners' homes and pensions fund under the management of the association being announced.
The announcement was made by Mr. Thomas Ashe Baty, an ex-president of the Rotary Club, and one of the executors under the will of Miss Catherine Ashe, of Oakfield, Roby, who died in November last. Her father, the late Mt. Theophilus Fielding Ashe, a prominent member of the export bottling trade in Liverpool, left a large estate on his death in 1894, his two daughters inheriting a life interest, with authority as to the ultimate disposal of sums for charitable purposes. Both daughters have now died, and under the will of Miss Catherine Ashe, £10,000 is bequeathed to the Liverpool Homes for Aged Mariners, Egremont, for the building and endowment of two cottage homes for aged mariners, to be named after their father and mother, and £4,000 to the Aged Merchant Seamen and Widows' Fund for the provision of pensions for two couples, to be known as Ashe pensioners.
The Rotary Club, through its president, Mr. W. T. McIvor, congratulated Captain Goodwin and Mr. Scott on this welcome aid to the benificent work of their association.
