Mothers Union ‘Away From It All’ holidays
The Mothers Union in this Diocese provides holidays and days out for disadvantaged and vulnerable families. The money to pay for these is donated by each Mothers Union branch and separate fund raising events are arranged each year by Beryl Mee, the AFIA rep. These have included a Dinner Party, Fashion Show and charity Golf days. Beryl also applies for grants from local agencies etc. Most of the families holiday at caravan sites on the Norfolk coast. Families are referred by Social Workers, Clergy, School Heads and some are referred by MU members with the back up from the Church.
Each year approximately 50 people are provided with family time in surroundings away from their normal locality.
