27th Lord Mayor Centenary Plaque set to be unveiled for Hull charity supporter - 27/07/16
The 27th Lord Mayor Centenary Plaque is being unveiled on Friday 29 July at 11am to honour Eleanor Anne Rollitt.

Eleanor (1853-1885) was the wife of Arthur Kaye Rollitt and a hugely active supporter of many charities. Eleanor had a particular interest in helping disadvantage children and had an open house policy, along with a great deal of involvement with the General Orphanage of Spring Bank. Eleanor was also actively involved with the Hull Seaman's and TS Southampton, along with the additional charities supported by her husband Arthur. Eleanor became Mayoress when Arthur was made Mayor in 1883.
