Violet Smith

"Violet's funeral was at the end of October 2022 and we directed people to Mildmay as the family’s charity of choice.

Violet was a long-standing (over 75 years) member of St. Jude’s and St. Paul’s church, which (as you know) has a long history with Mildmay through the Pennefather connection.

Before the merger of the churches in the 1950s, a group from St. Paul’s (including my parents) would take services some Sunday evenings in hospital wards in a building (now demolished) on Newington Green and I believe this was the Mildmay Mission hospital.

My mother has attended various events, including the service of thanksgiving held at St. Jude’s for Mildmay’s 150th anniversary."
