Through the exertions of Mr. Thomas Hanson and other friends of the temperance movement in Sunderland, a treat was given to about 300 poor children, who assembled in the Gospel Hall, a building in Russell Street, which stands on the ground recently purchased for the purpose of erecting a new building to accommodate a thousand persons at a cost of about £1,000, including the price of the ground. Thirty-one barley puddings, containing plenty of fruit and spices, which had been made by several ladies, were distributed to the children, who brought with them pots, basins, tin cans, &c., to carry home their shares.
