Mothers Union Forth Valley Branch

We are a friendly group of twenty three ladies now often joined by some gentlemen if a monthly meeting is of interest to them. As well as having regular meetings we work in the community a. to knit baby matinee jackets for the LArbert Hospital Neonatal Unit and b. to collect knickers, handbags, bath towels, toiletries and flip-flops for those in need. Helen Kemp and myself would be very pleased to hear from you if you feel you could help. Please don't hesitate to join us if you are free and interested in a meeting. You don't have to be a member and you would be very welcome. It's more about fellowship and helping people. Our programme this year is as follows:

HT Tots Cafe

More volunteers are needed for our ever-popular HT Tots Cafe on a Monday morning. To help is not onerous: we are looking for 2-3 people who would be willing to perhaps help out once a month (ca. 9.30 - 12 all in all), put out toys (and perhaps tables and chairs) but mainly make coffee, toast bagels and have a good time! Could you help with this or know of someone who would enjoy volunteering in that way? Please click on Contact Us if you are interested.
