Minute for Mothers Event

A coalition of leading charities including Save the Children, Oxfam and Amnesty International are going to be taking part in a 'Minute for Mothers' event in Central london today. (Friday)

The event will see 3000 white roses laid across Old Palace Yard opposite parliament to represent the 3000 pregnant women who will lose their lives this Mother's Day.

Mums who can't attend can get involved by retweeting the Mother of all Tweets @stcuk which highlights the need for maternal care.
