||In January 1890 notices appeared in the “Bradford Observer” inviting people to form a Cinderella Club to “reach and afford amusement” to the poor children of Bradford. By the 24th of January a meeting had been held; the club was formed and the first treat arranged.
The first act of the newly formed Bradford Cinderella Club was for “tea and entertainment" to be given to 200 poor children from all parts of the Borough at The Bradford Coffee Tavern on Saturday February 1st 1890.
Sadly, close to 125 years later, there are children who still need that bit of help funding a special treat. Fortunately, the Bradford Cinderella Club is still here meeting the needs of those children.
