In August 2021, the 14th World Assembly of the World Federation of Methodist and Uniting Church Women will take place in Gothenburg, Sweden, and once again we are encouraging MWiB groups and individuals to help us raise funds to enable women from some of the poorer areas of Europe to join us at the Assembly.
Following our past successes with ‘Tenners for Texas’, ‘Pounds for Pomezia’ and ‘Bonanza for Belfast’, we will be launching our latest fundraising idea, ‘Gifts for Gothenburg’, at our Swanwick residential weekend taking place in April 2020.
Here’s how it works:
~ The idea behind ‘Gifts for Gothenburg’ is that you can bring along to Swanwick (or send with someone else if not
attending yourself) one or more ‘gifts’. Items can be either bought or home-made – but they must be new, and
something nice that you would be pleased to receive yourself.
~ All gifts should be nicely wrapped. You can really go to town on the wrapping if you like, to make it look appealing,
because people will then choose one or more gifts to buy, based entirely on how nice the parcel looks from the
outside. Every gift will be a surprise!
~ As an indication of how much you might spend on your gift(s), we expect to sell gifts for £2 or £3 (though of course
people can give more if they wish).
You might like to use this idea to raise funds in your own group or at your own events. Any money you raise for ‘Gifts for Gothenburg’ can be paid in to MWiB in the usual way, but you must let Finance Officer Nina Rawlins know the amount paid in for ‘Gifts for Gothenburg’.
