As yet a print of the film has not yet been located.

THE TRUST OF A CHILD (1959) (37 min.): b&w.
Begins with the history of NCH, then shows aspects of the work in the present through the experiences of three women in various settings. Includes footage of residential care, the Staff Training College at Stephenson Hall, the ordination of women into the Sisterhood Order, and the annual reunion at Westminster with many old boys and girls. Projects and staff featured: Harrogate Branch and its Superintendent Mr Roycroft; Chipping Norton Branch; Hilton Grange at Bramhope; Family Aid and Sister Margaret Scorey. Interesting summing up by the Principal John Waterhouse, speaking as ''the father of this family''


Keep a watch on the following page, if a print is found a link will be posted at

Hello Gemma,
I remember Raymond Evans.  Perhaps I'm wrong, but I think he had a sister ( Susan ? )  
You might find a photo of your Dad in the 'Harrogate pictures' forum.

hi Gemma, I was @ Fairfield with Jennifer., We were in no 7 & he was in no 6 with his  sister Josephine. I remember them pretty well. Guess it may well be the same guy as I am 61 now myself.
What news do you have of them. Would love to be brought up to date. Does he remember any of us. I know a friend & house-mate of his was Olijide Martin.

Hi Raymond

I don't think we have met as I was probably many years before your time 1942 - 1954.
I see you have moved back to Harrogate and wondered whether you have been in touch with Di Ward or seen the details of the forthcoming reunion on 29th September.
If you go to the 2012 Reunion page on this forum you should find the details. Alternatively call me on 07804275048 and I will give you the leads.
There are now more than 50 people coming to the reunion and it would be good to add your name.

David Green

Hello Emma

 I see your Dad has made an entry on the site and I have replied. Just in case he doesn't go onto the site and see the message could you let him know we are having a reunion at Bilton Cricket Club on 29th September from 3 pm when over 50 people will be present and he might like to join us.

If you search this forum you will find details under 2012 reunion.

If you click onto the Forum tag, then go to page 4 of the main index, you'll find ' Harrogate Pictures' at the top.  Then if you go to page 15 of the Harrogate Pictures catagory, you might see yourself as a tot in the group photo.  
Perhaps Josephine is there too ?  You can enlarge the photo by clicking on it.

All the best,
