The money you will receive has been given by Juliet Bond. She was a nurse in Gloucester Royal Hospital. She was not rich but gave this money when she died in memory of her son who was adopted. She gave him up because he was illegitimate, and she could not keep him. This was in the 1960s. So this money is for you so use it wisely and if you can say ‘Thank you, Juliet.’
