Waldron Parish actively supports the Chichester Diocesan Association for Family Support Work (FSW) which is a charity working exclusively with families in Sussex. The President of FSW is the Bishop of Chichester, the Right Reverend Dr Martin Warner.
Representatives from the Parish attend the Dallington Deanery Committee meetings which organises fundraising events within the Deanery. Since 2018 we have been involved with some local NGA open garden events by providing teas. This has enabled us to raise the profile of FSW alongside raising funds. A special thank you to all those who help by providing cakes and/or assistance serving refreshments on the days in question.
Regular generous donations of food and household goods are collected from the parishes within the Deanery to support the work FSW undertakes. In addition we encourage Lent (including Easter eggs), pre summer school holidays (including summer activity toys and games) and harvest giving alongside our Advent Christmas gift donations. We are always amazed by the continuing generosity of our community.
Boxes for donations are in both Churches.
