Interview with Shelley Goff

Hi, my name is Shelley Goff and I am a member of the St Edward’s Branch in Romford. I am the branch secretary and have been now for a good number of years. I was enrolled at St. Edwards Church and I have been a member for about eight years. I enrolled when a lovely lady approached me and asked if I would like to be a MU member.
I was excited to find out about the charitable work and the projects that the MU was involved in. Lots of things inspire me about the MU, like the amazing work that is done overseas supporting and educating women, women who live in fear of violence or who are living in poverty. I also admire the work that goes on in prisons and the contact centres. All this is being done due to the monies raised in branches or from the voluntary work of women and men in the MU.
I am worried that the MU is finding it hard to recruit new members. I'm unsure as to what the solution for this might be but perhaps more social meetings or general get-togethers might encourage the younger members to come along and join us. If I could work one miracle it would be for every person to live in a world free from poverty, war and fear. I find it very difficult to comprehend that in a world that has so much, there is still a very unequal balance of opportunity and wealth. Shelley Goff.
