Glen Mervyn Junior Red Cross

The Glen Mervyn Red Cross Home at Randwick was operated by the Australian Red Cross from 1974. It took in children whose families were experiencing a range of problems, or who were experiencing health problems. Glen Mervyn Junior Red Cross Home is thought to have closed in the 1980s. The Red Cross conducted a convalescent home for ex-servicemen of World War II there from 1942-1946 when it was leased to Sydney Legacy at a token cost for use as a residence for wards of Legacy. In 1973 Legacy handed the property back to the Red Cross and the following year it opened as a Junior Red Cross Home “Glen Mervyn”.

Lianne (4) from the Glen Mervyn Homes found the Wombles toys very much to her liking.
