We continue to encourage Ovingdean residents to give generously. The need for emergency food parcels is becoming more acute this winter with families and single people  facing benefit cuts and rising costs, especially fuel bills.  Please leave your contributions in the porch of 45 Ainsworth Avenue, or in the crate at St Wulfran’s.
