Lady Liverpool

Annette, Lady Liverpool, the governor’s wife, acted as a role model for the women of New Zealand by establishing her own wartime charity, the Lady Liverpool League, on the outbreak of war. The fund operated throughout the conflict, setting up branches run by local women all over the country. Initially, it focused on providing comfort parcels for men going or serving overseas, but in 1915, Lady Liverpool expanded its activities to include support for sick and wounded New Zealand soldiers.
