Workers and volunteers recently took 12 families for a weekend away at Dalesdown Christian Conference Centre near Horsham. The venue is purpose built, a place where children can play and parents can relax. Outside, there is ample space for football and running around; plus mini-golf, an adventure trail, BBQ area and separate sports hall.
One parent said "My girls have slept in their own beds for the first time in three years! They felt safe here and I was able to go off and talk to other parents while they played happily." A father said "It's been so good to have other Dads to speak to, and also to speak to the staff about things."
MU caravans - FSW is fortunate to have access to two Mother's Union caravans, in Winchelsea and Selsey. FSW families who could otherwise not afford a holiday are able to use the caravans at no cost, they only have to pay for their travel and food, but sometimes FSW can assist with this.
FSW charity shop is now at 26 Cornfield Road, Eastbourne 10am-4.00pm Tuesday - Saturday.
Please place items you wish to donate in the box under the pigeon holes.
