The Hallaton Group Branch of the Mothers' Union
Members of the Mother Union responded magnificently to an appeal for items for 15 Afghan families currently housed in the Stamford Area. A carload of the requested items (which included toiletries, clothing, colouring books for children) was delivered. The gifts included two brand new Moses baskets complete with bedding and baby layettes which were given to one member by a kind couple who had purchased these items
specifically for Afghan refugees. The refugees were all associated with the British Embassy in Kabul and had left with only one small bag each.
Our next meeting (Covid guidelines permitting) will be held on Tuesday 12th October at 7.30pm at the home of Madeleine Wang , Briery Leys, Main Street, Tugby (LE7 9WD)
The theme of the evening is 'Hobbies' when everyone is invited to bring along, talk about and listen to each others hobbies and interests.
