Feeling Lucky?

We hope you’re all feeling very festive and looking forward to the big day tomorrow! On day twenty four of advent, Christmas eve itself, we bring you these lovely raffle tickets for Pelaw Ward Children’s treat fund Christmas draw, dated 1949. This would have been a time when rationing and scarcity was still very much being felt by people in Britain and this is reflected beautifully in the prizes that were available to be won. Most of the prizes were things that a lot of us might take for granted as essential Christmas commodities which we pop out to buy from the local supermarkets but in the late 1940’s, early 1950’s when many items were still being rationed, these would have been very gratefully received prizes!
