Family Works Angel: Robyn Clayton

Robyn Clayton is a mother of two adult sons, a grandmother, a retired accountant, and a parishioner at All Saints Taradale. Robyn describes herself as a ‘realist’. She’s also an angel.

In 2011, Robyn committed to becoming a Family Works Angel after spotting a double page newspaper advert. Family Works Angels are Kiwis who care deeply. They want to support our local children and families while they bravely overcome challenges, grief, trauma, and distress. Robyn sees the value in Family Works services, “I thought – that’s what I need to contribute to. In hindsight, I think what triggered it was that our older boy got into a lot of strife growing up, and nothing we tried worked. The fact that Family Works gets involved with the whole family, I thought, maybe that might have helped us.”

Robyn’s selfless generosity makes this down-to-earth, practical ‘realist’ a true angel. We are grateful every day to have regular donors like Robyn joining us to lead social change with courage and care.
