Family Support Work

Update July 6th 2020

Lockdown has been hard for us all and our 259 FSW families are no different – no school, no friends, possibly no outside space, strained relationships, redundancies and reduced incomes, a shortage of food and lack of activities to pass the time.

With FSW providing 96 families with a food box containing 20 meals and other necessities in June, our food bank has been severely depleted, (despite wonderful support from firstly a building firm and secondly Mothers Union). Arrangements for a monthly collection from Parishes is planned to coincide with future deliveries to families. Please, if you are able to add something to your shopping basket to include in the collections from our Parish the families will be very grateful.

And/or if you have a toy, a game, a book, a pack of cards or even a ball that you can donate to employ young (and older) minds and feet then that would be a bonus. They do not have to be new just fit for purpose.

With our Churches now open you can leave donations in the FSW box in either Church (on the relevant day) or deliver to Sarah Mackenzie 866419, Christo Corfield 812654 or Carollyn Stanbridge 866750(opposite the Heathfield Post Office if you happen to be visiting) or ring one of us to arrange collection.
