CARE is a local voluntary organization which offers practical help to residents in and around Haywards Heath. We take people shopping (an outing in itself for many who have little contact with the outside world), shop for them when they can no longer shop for themselves, transport them to surgeries, hospitals etc., undertake small tasks within the home, visit those who are lonely or housebound.
The hub of the whole scheme is a 24/7 Helpline and computerized recording system operated by a team of Duty Officers from their own homes.
CARE is completely dependent upon the help of volunteers and the need for new volunteers is on-going if we are to maintain our level of service.
At All Saints, we are all very busy people, many doing their own ‘caring’ already. However, others may be looking for some practical way in which to demonstrate Christ’s love, e.g. someone who has just retired or recently moved into the area or whose circumstances have changed. CARE would welcome you and can use as much or as little time as you can offer.
All Saints have always been well represented on the list of volunteers, but sadly we have lost several over the past year, including Christine Rayner and Helen Eldred who did so much for CARE. How delighted they would have been to know that others had come forward to help fill in the gaps as a result of this Lent Appeal. For further information,
