August Events across the Diocese

Benwell MU hosted an informal afternoon with Bingo, board games, information about MU, bring and share lunch and friendship.  We had 24 people attend and raised £100 for MU causes.  Most importantly, it was really super easy to organise and we had a lovely afternoon spending time together.
