Charity of the Month; Mothers Union, Richmond Branch.

Charity of the Month; Mothers Union, Richmond Branch.

It is hoped that you will support the Mothers Union as charity of the month at St Marys Richmond with Hudswell, Downholme and Marske. This will help in the continuing work of this worldwide Christian charity.

Our branch does what it can to support St. Mary’s Church as well as the Mothers Union world wide in the Province and diocese. The band concert with afternoon tea has become an annual treat for its devotees. Look out for the Belles of St Marys when our catering skills can come to the fore.On Mothering Sunday we have given a primula plant for members of the congregation. Very kindly delivered by generous volunteers last year due to the first lockdown. Members have knitted caps and jackets for premature babies at the Friarage and James Cook hospitals. Mrs Wilson used to try them for size on an orange. In the lock down we may have stayed in but we have kept in touch with each other by phone, letter and e-mail. One member has knitted countless teddies to be used in police cars and ambulances for children in traumatic situations.Some have volunteered to help others with shopping, delivering prescriptions, baking for neighbours etc .shielding all the time to keep families and neighbours safe.Our fund raising has been minimal this year, hence this appeal.
