June Butler, All Ireland President of Mothers’ Union (MU), returns to do the last of three fundraising walks in Connor Diocese on Wednesday October 13.
Among those accompanying June on her 7km walk from St Jude’s, Muckamore, to All Saints’, Antrim, will be the Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev George Davison, and the Archdeacon of Connor, the Ven Dr Stephen McBride.
Because MU fundraising at branch level was suspended due to the pandemic, June set herself the challenge to walk 21 kilometres, made up of three legs of 7km, in each of the 12 Church of Ireland dioceses in Ireland, and sought sponsorship from MU members and members of the public.
Her first walk in Connor was in Belfast on April 13, when June walked from Stranmillis to St Anne’s Cathedral, and her second walk, from Holy Trinity Parish Church, Portrush, to Agherton Parish Church, Portstewart, took place on April 26.
All monies raised by ’21 in 21’ walks will go to the ‘Mums in May’ fund to provide support for MU projects in Ireland and overseas. Donations can be made on this LINK.
