Australian Hospital Saturday Fund badge set.  Founded in the UK during the 1800’s, this charity was originally set up to raise funds for the poor who needed medicine & treatment.  Hospitals were only for the well to do.  Today the fund focus is on raising money for medical grants & research.  Ones pay went in on a Saturday, so people were encouraged to make a regular donation to the fund on that day.  Badges measure 2cm – 2.5cm diameter.
