Queues, Clogs & Redemption booklet

Wood Street Mission has been helping children and families living in poverty since Victorian times.

The Queues, Clogs and Redemption exhibition, recently exhibited at Salford Museum and Art Gallery, and accompanying booklet, looks at our work down through the generations from the days of rescuing street children in the nineteenth century, sending tens of thousands to the seaside in the first half of the twentieth century, and running a city gym in the 1980s.

It is part of a series of heritage activities aimed at documenting our past and raising awareness about child poverty in the run up to our 150th Anniversary in 2019.

We have copies of the Queues, Clogs and Redemption booklet available, please contact us if you would like to be sent a copy.
