All Saints Wellingborough Mothers’ Union Hospital Visit


The members of All Saints Wellingborough Mothers’ Union have been collecting small toiletries for the use of children who find themselves in Kettering Hospital in an emergency.

This resulted in a very interesting visit to the Skylark Ward. We were given a tour of the many facilities that this new children’s ward has to offer. It included a sensory room, a playroom, a room for teenagers, besides all medical facilities in bright child friendly surroundings.

We gave them ten toilet bags containing essentials such as toothbrush, toothpaste, a flannel, shower gel, a comb, hairbrush etc.  enough for an overnight stay. These will be replaced when necessary. In fact a message was received in the evening of our visit that one had already helped a child.

A few teddies may also find their way there for brave children to take home.

Congratulations, Jill

1aed8787-7c72-40c7-9588-ce0bd0c2c742Jill completed her challenge to play 140 holes of golf in a week. She was very well supported by family, golf club members, church members and Mothers’ Union members and she wishes to thank them all. On the  Thursday she was accompanied by Bishop John Holbrook, the bishop of Brixworth, the sun continued to shine and they played 9 holes. On Friday she was accompanied by Barbara the diocesan president, we only managed 4 holes as there was a torrential downpour, but it was fun. (Is there a moral to this story?) On Saturday she played the final 23 holes and as you will see from the photo she celebrated with a glass of wine and a smile on her face.

Well done Jill for raising a grand total of over £2,000 for M.U. worldwide work.
