The Sara Lee Trust is £500 better off thanks to the Civil Service Motoring Association Bexhill and District Group.
Dan Redsull, chief executive of the Trust attended the group’s AGM to collect the cheque and give a talk on the work of the Sara Lee Trust and how the funds raised will be used to help people in the local area living with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.
The funds were raised through monthly raffles and also a loose change jar that goes round at meetings, plus any other donations the group raises.
Dan Redsull said: “We are so grateful to groups like the CSMA Bexhill and District Group for their support of our work.
“The Trust receives no statutory funding and is entirely reliant on fundraising and public donations, so to have groups fundraising on our behalf is an enormous help’.
The Sara Lee Trust aims to improve the lives and well-being of people living with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses in the Hastings and Rother area through the provision, free of charge, of creative and complementary therapies, psychological and counselling support, and therapeutic group activities.
The Trust is committed to making its services accessible to all in an area where deprivation, early death and health inequalities are significantly worse than the national average. Complementary to medical care, the Trust offers time, meaningful touch and support, so that each person may live life as fully as possible, even with a life threatening diagnosis. It also operates four charity shops in Hastings, St.Leonards on Sea and Bexhill.
