The whole campaign of organizing this auction by Mr Wally Pope 58, of Barking Road, Plaistow was to save the life of a small boy Billy Taylor aged 5, of Lowe Avenue, Canning Town, who is suffering from Leukemia. The idea was to raise money and to send him to the clinic run by Dr Joseph Issells in Bavaria. The boy went there and is now back in this country, at the Great Ormond Street, Childrens Hospital. Over 200 birds were auctioned and the highest price raised was ??65. One pigeon was supposed to be worth ??150 reached only ??45. The pigeons were all donated by Club members and people from the area. Mr Wally Pope the auctioneer in full action. December 1970 70-11720 -002
