Harvest Festival 2023
This Harvest we supported two charities, feeding people in need locally and overseas:
- a collection at our Harvest services for Mary’s Meals, an international charity providing nutritious school meals to more than 2.4 million children living in some of the world’s poorest countries – raised £1000
- Collection of tinned and packet food for Whitehawk Foodbank
Turkey /Syria Earthquake Disaster Appeal – St Wulfran’s four Lent Lunches raised over £1300 for charities working with the Disasters Emergency Committee.
The Village Hall Cake Sale on Saturday 25 March also raised £1300 for the appeal.
St Wulfran’s Christmas Charity 2022 – we raised a magnifcent total of £2000 thanks to generous donations at our Crib and Carol Services and viullage carol singing.
Last year we supported the Whitehawk Foodbank as our Lent charity by raising money to contribute to the emergency needs of local families at the height of the pandemic. 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.
Please keep up your support by donating food to the crate in St Wulfran’s or to 45 Ainsworth Avenue. URGENTLY NEEDED ITEMS:TINNED FRUIT & VEGETABLES; CUSTARD; RICE PUDDING;TINNED CURRY (MEAT AND/OR VEGETARIAN); COFFEE; LONGLIFE JUICE; LLONGLIFE MILK;TOOTHBRUSHES AND TOOTHPASTE
