Retail as Fundraising: Some Questions from NHS History

One of the good things about my new scholarly home a the University of Wolverhampton is that it’s home to CHORD – the Centre for the History of Retailing and Distribution. If you’re at all familiar with my work on the history of hospitals and charity, you might be wondering what on earth that has to do with my research. Well…

I spoke at a workshop CHORD hosted a few weeks ago – on retailing, distribution and reputation: historical perspectives – tentatively outlining the questions raised by retail cropping up in the history of hospital fundraising before and under NHS. I’ve now written that up for the Centre’s blog in a post which you can read here.
