A new venture for Milton Methodist

Milton coffee morning

One of our congregation, Emma Mtendera, comes from Zimbabwe. Emma told us of the desperate plight of people as the social fabric (schools, medical services etc) has collapsed. Emma's sister Alice ( aged nearly 80 and who trained as a teacher) runs a charity to feed and support women and children in Harare. This presented a good opportunity for us to get directly involved in a small charity, part of our extended church family. We were pleased to hold a coffee morning on 4 November to support Alice's work. It made a very happy morning's fellowship, and we were pleased to raise £170 for this excellent cause.
