British Aid fund

In the midst of World War II, the Mutual Fire Underwriters Association of Ontario (of which South Easthope Mutual was a member) created the British Aid Fund, where member companies  would donate three per cent of their surplus to be used for relief of the distress of bomb-stricken farmers or village folk. South Easthope Mutual contributed $1,000 to the British Aid fund in 1941 and each year after during the war.
