Mothers’ Union knits for needy children

Mothers’ Union members prepare to send knitted items to needy children abroad

DEDICATED members of Backwell Mothers’ Union have been busy knitting clothes to send abroad.

The 35-strong group, which meets at Church House in St Andrew’s Church, have been making jumpers, scarves, hats and mittens which will be sent to needy children in Eastern Europe.

They will also be sending knitted toys out to a hospital in Kenya for children undergoing treatment.

The Mothers’ Union is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year and members help to support a number of national and international projects including support victims of rape, orphans and teenage mothers at home and abroad.
