Church of England Diocese of Leeds Settle

1. Newsletter (May 2019)

Mothers’ Union is a worldwide Christian charity, with 4 million members in 84 countries. Members campaign for policies which strengthen family life in ways appropriate to their communities. The Giggleswick with Settle branch is a very small part of this in our corner of North Yorkshire, but we aim to do our bit. Praying and working together gives us strength and a real sense of fellowship in the gospel with others doing the same all over the globe. The charity works with people of all faiths and none to strengthen families and to be an advocate for change.

Mothers’ Union in the Diocese of Leeds owns two caravans, at Primrose Valley near Filey, and is able to offer “Away From It All” holidays at very low cost to families who need a break but cannot afford it. 88 adults and 87 children were given holidays in 2018 and, as a branch, we were able to contribute £300 to this project.

We would like to do the same this year and invite you to help us. Please come and join us for

AFTERNOON TEA on Wednesday 8 May from 2.30p.m. in St. Alkelda’s for tea and treats!
