Waves in Seaford appeals for support to help the vulnerable

A CHARITY based in Seaford which looks after vulnerable families is appealing for donations.

Waves also runs a drop in the centre in Church Street but receives no financial support from Government.

Volunteers to help with organising fundraising events are also very welcome.

Waves chairman Richard Plowman said: “Like most local charities we are always in need of obtaining funds on a continuous basis in order to survive, and to continue to be able to offer help and support to families who are vulnerable in our local community.

“Two members of the committee spend a large amount of their own time looking for organisations that might be willing to support us financially and then bidding for any potential funds by preparing grant application forms along with a case for Waves.

“In the past this hard work has had its rewards with grants from the Co-op, Children in Need and Lloyds TSB. Now in this time of financial crisis this source of money is getting harder to obtain and it is more difficult for small local charities to be successful.”

The charity has a dedicated fund raising committee that meets once every six weeks.

It has arranged to run stalls at local fetes, schools, donkey derby, run a craft fair, painting exhibitions and concerts.

Individual volunteers very kindly make donations from making marmalade, to organising and taking part in musical concerts, and other various fund raising activities.

To become a volunteer, make a donation by one off payment or direct debit please contact Waaves on 01323 873797
