MU Mums In May Mad Hatters Tea Party!

The Mothers Union ‘Mums in May Mad Hatters Tea Party’ was held on Sunday 17th May 2015 from 4pm to 6pm.
It was originally planned to have the Tea Party in the Deanery grounds but due to the inclement weather
it was moved inside. The weather didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits and we had a wonderful afternoon
of fellowship, laughter and of course….an amazing Tea Party!

Over 50 people attended, from aged 4 weeks to 80+ years. We were delighted to welcome the MU
Diocesan President, Mrs Joy Little, who brought her Mum along to the event.

Funds were raised for the ongoing work of the Mums In May which provides grants for young people
each summer to attend camps such as ‘Summer Madness’ and the CEF camps in Donegal.

Many thanks to our Branch Leader, Liz Greer, for all her work organising the event, to the Dean for allowing
us the use of the Deanery for the day, to all the MU Ladies and their families who provided goodies and helped out,
and of course to all those who attended and made this such a successful event!
