The Mothers' Union is a Christian Charity with 4 million members in 85 countries around the world. There has been a branch in Choppington Parish for 110 years. Our members meet on the second Tuesday of the month at St. Paul's Church. We are small in number but all very loyal and involved in the work of Bedlington Deanery and Newcastle Diocese.
We provide 10 emergency toilet bags each month to Cramlington Hospital, Knitted blankets to Homes for the elderly, Activity aprons for Alzheimer patients, clothing for premature babies, 10 Shoe Boxes at Christmas for the homeless in Newcastle, funding for literacy projects around the world and holidays and days out for deprived families. Obviously we are always happy to welcome new members, male or female, there is no discrimination-the criteria being that we all had a mother! .
