At the recent Spring Council meeting in Enniskillen, Mothers’ Union leadership from over 30 branches celebrated another successful year where they undertook projects to support the local community on both sides of the border and overseas. The membership contributed £10,779 and €1,060.

The crafting skills of many members were also highlighted when Noreen Little, Action and Outreach Co-Ordinator, reported that in 2018 she had delivered 335 knitted teddies to SWAH for use in the Accident and Emergency Department as well as the Children’s Ward. Knitted garments for the neonatal unit were also warmly welcomed as well as ‘fiddle mats’ for the dementia ward.

These are just some of the highlights of Clogher Diocesan MU members showing their Christian Care for Families.
