Mothers' Union Deanery Fayre Raises £700


The Mothers' Union held its annual Deanery Fayre at Christchurch Rooms on Saturday 19 October with stalls run by the town's Mothers' Union Branches, including our own Abington Church Mothers' Union raising a total of £684.25. The Abington Church MU stall raised a magnificent £153.50, the most they have ever raised at the event.


Cathy Tinsley, Abington Church MU Branch Leader said, "This is a fantastic result in no small part to the amount of support and donations we received from our own members and that of church members. So a huge thank you to you all".


The money will be going to the Mothers' Union Harvest Appeal where for just £39.50 MU can provide food supplies to communities hit by crop devastation. Over 17 million people live on less than £1.50 a day and lack of a successful harvest can mean starvation and death.
