Mothers' Union Tea Cosy Competition raises £670

There were 132 brilliantly inventive decorated tea cosies auctioned at the St Davids Diocese Mothers' Union Welsh Afternoon Tea Party in Bancyfelin village hall.
The event was opened by President, Brenda Evans, who said how much she appreciated the superb display of tea cosies all of which would help raise awareness of the Mothers' Union’s Wheels Appeal which supports members in distant lands as they work for families in need. 
 

The winner of the best tea cosy competition was Grace Alibson, leader of the Cardigan Mothers' Union branch.
Her tea cosy was so beautifully embroidered on the Mothers' Union logo theme that it is being kept for Diocesan occasions. 


Ann Gill, the Wales Provincial Mothers' Union President, who was present on the day, congratulated the winner.
Almost all the hand made tea cosies, which came in all colours, shapes and sizes, were sold at auction to the delight of Mari Thomas, the Mothers' Union member who masterminded the competition and the tea party.
“We never expected to have so many entries of such outstanding quality. Everyone had taken to heart the need to be both practical and decorative. The members present at the tea party were thrilled to have raised £670 towards such vital work.”

Mothers’ Union is an international Christian membership charity of over 4.1 million members living 83 countries across the world.
Members are committed campaigning and praying for stable marriage and family life for people of all faiths and none.
