What's cooking for the Union?

The Mothers Union is putting its culinary skills to the test, raising money and submitting recipes for a new cookery book to be given to all students at Suffolk University. At the time of writing 56 has been raised towards the project and anyone with ideas for economical and/or simple recipes should send them to Branch Leader Margaret Lowe.

The MU also has a new magazine, Families First, with each branch challenged to buy 10 extra copies with a 10 profit going to MU projects worldwide. The next fund-raising event is a Beetle Drive at St Mary's House on 6th November at 2.30pm. Tickets: 2 from St Mary's Shop.
