ONE of the groups hosting an Easter Breakfast this year in
support of the Christian charity Mercy Ships will be the Women's
Own group at St Mary's, Saffron Walden, in
Chelmsford diocese. One of the organisers, Judith
Felgate, said: "When we heard about the Easter Breakfast campaign,
we decided it would make an excellent opportunity to highlight the
work of Mercy Ships, and make an extra-special breakfast to raise
money to support the charity's wonderful work."
Besides watching a DVD of the charity's work taking hospital
ships to provide free medical care and humanitarian aid to some of
the poorest countries of Africa, they will also have various
fund-raising activities, such as "Name the bunny", cake and
bring-and-buy stalls, and a raffle, all with an Easter theme.
