800 WAIT' FOR PLACE IN HOMES

MORE than 80(1 disabled and sick people are on the "waiting list" of the Cheshire Foundation Homes in England and Overseas Grp. Capt, Leonard Cheshire V.C., said this week. He was making an appeal on BBC television.

More homes, helpers and money are needed, he said. Money will not be used for administration purposes, but will go straight to those who need help.

The Foundation also announces that. it is to seek outside help so specially designed flats can be built for permanently disabled people. The London County Council is one authority which is to help in the venture.

As soon as a suitable site is found, the L.C.C. will build special flats for about 30 families. The Foundation is to provide a nursing wing for the chronically ill.

A grant of f3.000 made this week to the Cheshire Foundation by the Gulbenkian Foundation is to be used to make films for showing in various parts of the world which will illustrate the overseas work of the Foundation,

Art works to he sold

From J. Coggan

St. Barnabas Cathedral, Nottingham, is to sell a 500-year-old wooden carving of the Crucifixion, a painting by a 17th century French Master and several valuable alabaster plaques at Christie's next month.

The carving, to be auctioned on March 19, is a late 15th century example of Cologne work, 55 in. high and showing 15 figures. The painting, which is to be sold on the following day is a picture of Christ crowned with thorns by Philippe de Champaigne.

No one now knows how these treasures came into the possession of the Cathedral. During the last war they were placed in Nottingham Castle for safety after Mr. Clement Pitman, then the City's Art Director, had examined them and recognised their worth.
