THANK YOU

The East Grinstead Justice and Peace Group recently held their 25th annual Sleep Out representing all churches in the town working together ecumenically to promote social justice.  It was, in their words, "a warm night with light showers, friendly chats with interested young people - no hardship for one night."

In the last 25 years the EG J&P Group has raised at least 80,000 for homeless charities - national and local. This year, the benefitting charities were Crawley Open, House, The Easter Team and Worthing Churches Homeless Project.

23 people slept out this year with the youngest being 15 and the oldest 70. The event was attended by Deputy Mayor Councillor Bob Mainstone.

Everyone here at Crawley Open House woild like to say thank you and well done to the whole group for their committed efforts to help those less affected by homelessness. We would also urge you to consider supporting one or more of their future events:

Forest Row Orchestra is holding a Concert at 11am on Saturday 4 July at Moat United Reformed Church. Tickets: adults 6, children 1. Tickets on the door or booked through Julian Spencer. 01342 324560.

In the Autumn there will be a number of fundraising charity meals at restaurants in East Grinstead, Forest Row and Lingfield - details to follow.

Further info from Sue Joy. 01342 825190.
