The chief executive of an international charity visited Nailsea volunteers to find out what projects they have been working.
Bev Jullien, head of the Mothers’ Union was invited to Holy Trinity Church to meet members.
There are two branches of the Mothers’ Union in Nailsea which have been helping with a number of projects.
Volunteers have helped to supply women’s refuges with food and toiletries and they also can run contact centres so parents who do not live with their children can spend time with them in a safe environment.
They knit clothes and toys for children’s centres, hospitals and care homes and raise money and arrange holidays for families under stress.
The groups put on fundraising concerts, coffee mornings and lunches.
Money raised goes to local causes and oversees projects where educational programmes help people to support themselves.
