Mothers' Union Relief Fund
Members fundraise for the Mothers’ Union Relief Fund at Christmas. When having their Branch Christmas Lunch and family celebrations, members and their families are asked to think of those suffering from the effects of famine or disaster and donate at least 20p each.
The Relief Fund provides emergency financial help for communities affected by natural disaster or conflict. The grassroots nature of Mothers' Union makes it well placed within communities to quickly obtain food, materials and medicines for immediate distribution where most needed.
Make a Mothers' Day
Members raise fund to support overseas work through purchasing ethical gifts instead of chocolates and flowers for Mother's Day. Sometimes members may club together to purchase one larger gift.
The Wheels Appeal is a summer fundraiser. Members are invited to raise vital funds to support travel of Mothers' Union workers around the world. They bake for cake stalls, hold coffee mornings and supper evenings etc to raise the money.
Blankets for Uganda
Some members knit squares, which are sent out to Wakisa Ministries, which supports traumatised pregnant young women who are forced to leave their family home. Sewing blankets out knitted squares assists the bonding process with their babies.
