The Women’s Union was founded in 1893 by ministers’ wives. Each year a different charity is supported. Despite only having 30 branches, we raise £2,500-£3,000 per year. We presented a cheque at our September 2010 meeting for £2200 to Mercy Ships (AGM pictured right). This year we are raising funds for the Girls’ Brigade Scotland national appeal
