St Dunstan's Candy Book
A candy recipe book from New Zealand donated to St Dunstan's.
The St Dunstan's Candy Book was a recipe book of homemade candies compiled in New Zealand by Ladies of Lower Hutt.
Lower Hutt is a city in the Wellington Region of New Zealand and St Dunstan's, now Blind Veterans UK, helped many veterans from New Zealand who were blinded in the First World War.
The book, which was donated to the charity, was published in 1917 and was in aid of soldiers and sailors blinded in the war.
As well as lots of interesting recipes, the book also included some information on St Dunstan's and how they support blind veterans to discover life beyond sight loss.
