Many of the huts and beds in Netley hospital were sponsored by towns and cities whose residents raised funds and donated their efforts to help pay for their upkeep. The ladies especially were always having sales and fetes or asking for donations by collecting coins in tins, selling flags on "flag days" and writing letters to their local newspapers for help.
