Betty Lennie, our MU Branch Leader writes
The UK Mothers’ Union Project this year is to raise funds for their “Summer of Hope” appeal.
Funds raised through this campaign will support people that are vulnerable and marginalised. It will focus on helping where the need is greatest. For example, in the South Sudan conflict, Mothers’ Union is trying to bridge divided communities in a civil war that has torn families apart and brought much violence. Often the vulnerable are the most affected by conflict. That particularly means women and children. We can help women and families out of poverty, allow them to nurture their children and unite divided communities around the world. This is the heart of Mothers’ Union. We are there for families – regardless of their circumstances.
Our members decided to host a “Vintage Tea Party”. Raffle prizes were collected over a period of time. A lot of organisation and home baking of scones and delicious cakes were made. The tables were set out to a very high standard with good china ware and posies of flowers. Some people came dressed in vintage dress which added to the atmosphere. It was a very enjoyable afternoon.
A total of £446.61p was raised for this worthy charity.
On behalf of all our members, I would like to thank all who supported this event. On a personal level, I would also like to say a big thank you to our ladies in St. John’s Mothers Union for the hard work and efforts they put into this event.
