Caring & Sharing East Sussex "Live more simply that others may simply live"
What is Caring Sharing?
The Caring and Sharing scheme was started in Eastbourne in 1982.
It is based on two ideas: the first is that by making a small sacrifice members can turn away from the material values of the western world; the second is that they can share their comparative wealth by sending the savings from this small sacrifice to projects in poorer countries to provide the basic needs of life. The sacrifice is not expected to be a major one. It is in its regularity that it grows in value. A digestive biscuit costs only a few pence, but 5p per day amounts to more that £18 per year. Such sums given regularly by many Carers enable us to send about £70,000 a year to our chosen projects.
We try to: ‘Live more simply that others may simply live’.
From 2013 the patron of Caring and Sharing is the Rt. Rev’d Nicholas Reade. former Bishop of Blackburn.
