May 15 1890, Miss Curno appealed for funds on behalf of the Santa Claus Society to set up a Convalescent Home on the north side of London for the benefit of children who needed some surgical nursing and babies under three years of age. It was felt that the children would benefit from the bracing air of the northern heights in the summer.
