Hastings Direct has donated £13,000 for one of their charity partners for 2015 – Charity for Kids.
The donation was made possible thanks to the fund raising efforts of staff throughout the summer.
Staff at its head office in Bexhill has been competing in a range of sports since June with all proceeds, along with monies raised at a recent awards night, being donated to the charity.
Jay Wootten, community liaison at Hastings Direct said, “The summer of sport has been a real team effort and colleagues have competed in a range of events to raise money to help make a difference.
“We are delighted to have raised this amount which we know will make a huge difference.”
Paul Harris, CEO of Charity for Kids said: “Thank you to Hastings Direct for this superb donation, which will be used to support the applications we receive from local families in need. As a local charity made up purely of volunteers, we rely on fundraising efforts like this to support the work we do.”
Hastings Direct has made donations to a number of local charities and good causes, including donating to the Jake’s Splash Appeal and donating £100 to fifteen year old Dan Tillett from Bexhill, who has recently been selected for the England Junior Sea Angling Team.
Charity For Kids was established in 2011 to provide help for disabled, sick and terminally ill children – and their families – across Rother and Hastings.
They have helped children and their families with everything from specialised wheelchairs and walking frames to hot tubs and garden landscaping. Visit www.charityforkids.co.uk.
