Mothers' Union joins the Together Coalition
We join partners including the NHS, BBC, the Women’s Institute, Sport England and many others to build a kinder, closer and more connected society
We are pleased to announce that we have joined with the Together coalition and along with our 55,000-strong membership in Britain and Ireland, on the 5th July, we will come together to say the biggest thank you possible to all those who have helped us to get us through Covid-19. We are also looking forward to supporting the coalition in its mission to build a kinder, closer and more connected society throughout 2020 and beyond.
On the eve of the launch, 4th July at 9pm (BST) we will be holding an online Love thy Neighbour, A Service of Reflection and Celebration for Community and Kindness via our Facebook page (available afterwards on our YouTube channel). We are thrilled that The Rt Revd & Rt Hon Sarah Mullally DBE will be preaching the word to us at this service and Rev Barry Hill will be presiding– we invite everyone to please join us for this special occasion. You can download your copy of the service sheet below.
Bev Jullien, our CEO says "“The ethos of the Together coalition couldn’t have chimed more clearly with us, not just because of the work that we do, but especially at this moment in time when we are focused on the exceptional need for recovery and rebuilding within families and communities."
To coincide with this, we are launching our Thank You Key Workers Appeal to recognise those who have continued to go above and beyond to help others. Whilst there has been a triumph of compassion and care during Covid-19, from hospital worker to delivery driver, careworker to cleaner, it has meant a great deal of personal sacrifice to many, including quality family time. The Appeal officially launches on the 5th July and we are asking people to support it in whichever way they can, from nominating a key worker, to fundraising or just letting people about the Appeal in their local communities and networks.
