Hastings Direct will once again be giving a helping hand to charities and organisations throughout 2016.

Supporting the community since 2010, the Bexhill-based insurance provider’s A Helping Hand scheme looks to help groups and charities in 1066 country.

Along with monetary assistance, groups or individuals can apply for practical and professional help from Hastings Direct’s colleagues, who can donate their time to help and make a difference in the area.

Around £12,000 and 5,500 man hours were donated by Hastings Direct in 2015, helping over 50 charities and groups and making a real difference to hundreds of individuals.

Community liaison Jay Wootton said: “Last year we helped over 50 community groups and charities via our Helping Hand scheme.

“We are now looking at who we might be able to help in 2016.”
