Certificate Sent to Children by the Overseas Club in WW1

Children raised money for the Overseas Club during WW1, to send boxes of presents to soldiers. Children who raised over a certain amount would receive a certificate praising their efforts. This was awarded to Walter Whiteley, a young boy from Sheffield, in 1915.
