During the First World War the grounds provided a venue for
fund raising and morale boosting activities.
The Cannock Women's Co-operative Guild provided tea and refreshments, with proceeds after expenses donated to Cannock Chase Military Hospital, and the Prisoners of War Fund. The event was filmed and later shown in local cinemas.
