Walking 140km - September 7th - 12th

Rita has set herself the phenomenal challenge of walking 140km in six days - from the Turner Contemporary art gallery in Margate to Mary Sumner House. A group of members will also be joining her for the last mile from the Imperial War Museum.

You can follow her progress over the six days on Facebook and visit Rita's JustGiving page to support her on this incredible pilgrimage. 

Abseiling the Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth – Sunday June 19th 

 Jane has been a Mothers’ Union member for over 30 years, is Branch Leader for Midhurst and Easebourne and volunteers for several local Mothers’ Union projects. While thinking about ways to increase fundraising in her branch, she thought this challenge would be a great way to inspire others and also celebrate our 140th year. She has already raised over £1,500, some of which will go to support her local Mothers’ Union AFIA project, providing holidays for families facing adversity.  What a great way to kick off what will hopefully be the start of many fundraising events to come from Midhurst and Easebourne! 

Give Jane a little boost of courage by supporting her today – www.justgiving.com/Noel-Simpson
