The Mothers’ Union were very pleased to be offered a stand at Starburst to inform both the clergy and lay members about Mothers’ Union and especially the Away From It All holiday scheme. We found this opportunity very valuable and were pleased to be included in this Diocesan event.
Oundle branch have always been strong supporters of the A.F.I.A. holiday project, both by fund raising and also with prayer.
On 6th August they invited Jean one of our project coordinators [Joy was on holiday] to their meeting. Jean told them about how the scheme runs and showed them a picture graph of makeup of the families who went away last year. I was able, also, to tell them of some of the variety of the holidays that had been held in the past.
Coincidentally, there were three coordinators, past and present, there. Please see the accompanying photo. Rachel, who was coordinator in the early 90s, Barbara from the late 90s and of course Jean our current coordinator.
The afternoon concluded with lots of chat, catching up and many delicious cakes and tea.
Thank you, Oundle.
