Mothers' Union urges parents to talk about perils of sexting

Mothers’ Union yesterday (16th August 2016) spoke on Premier Christian Radio News Hour about the new figures released by the NSPCC showing how most parents believe the idea of sending indecent images via text to be harmful, but nearly six in 10 have not spoken to their children about the issue.


Celebrating Mary Sumner Day

Today, 9th August, is Mary Sumner Day; a very special day to our members, friends and supporters as it celebrates the life and work of our founder. This year, we also mark 140 years since Mary Sumner humbly began a movement with a mission to promote conditions for stable family life and the protection of children. 

Now working in 83 countries around the world, Mothers’ Union continues its vital work in many different forms. The vision now positively benefits the lives of over 500,000 people each year worldwide. 


#TeamMothersUnion - Intrepid Individuals Raise Funds

Over recent weeks our amazing members have truly been rising to the challenge to do something daring, creative, or innovative to raise funds for Mothers’ Union and to increase awareness of our organisation during our 140th year. 

Jill Cannings regularly plays golf – around 36 holes a week. But for a week in June she went a bit beyond the usual by playing 140 holes in six days to celebrate Mothers’ Union’s 140th.  This was a mammoth effort, and Jill raised a similarly mammoth £2,020.53. We hope we haven’t put her off her hobby!
