V.C Cockerel of Warboys: The cockerel was sold and resold at auction by Mr Frank Fison, some 2,500 times both locally and countrywide travelling over 2,400 miles. This was one of the many schemes to raise money for the British Red Cross during World War 1. The total amount raised by the cockerel to February 1919 was £14,517; £600 came from Warboys. Each person who bought it received a token showing they had donated.
