    Online Shopping

    Use the following websites to shop online and Mothers’ Union will receive a small donation for each purchase you make.

    Carol Singing

    On Monday 3rd December 2018 a group of Mothers’ Union staff and members will gather together to sing carols at Westminster Underground Station and collect donations from passers-by. Contact us if you would like to join us or find out more about how you can do something similar in your local area.

    Bucket Collections

    Many shops and local councils will let you have a couple of hours to collect money on their premises. However, there are certain fundraising regulations that you must adhere to. Please contact us for more information. We can also provide collection buckets for you to use.

    Payroll Giving

    Ask your employer if they can arrange for a monthly donation to Mothers’ Union to be taken from your salary before tax is deducted. Please contact us for more information.
