Abstract:
This article discusses how Macclesfield silk manufactuers contributed towards the development of voluntary organisations as part of their public role, using Sunderland Street Wesleyan chapel and the ragged and industrial school as examples. It explores the general reasons behind their charitable involvement and the extent to which their contribution was critical to the success of Sunderland Street Wesleyan chapel and the ragged and industrial school.
