A summer photo competition with £1,000 prize money will help raise funds for a Hastings charity.

The competition has been launched by popular family attraction Hastings Adventure Golf.

For this inaugural Big Summer Photo Competition, Hastings Adventure Golf is calling for photographs taken in Hastings that fit in with the theme of ‘Crazy Seaside Adventures’.

The crazy golf complex of three 18-hole courses has also pledged to donate £1 to the Winkle Club for each of the first 500 photos it receives.

The winning photographer will receive £500 when the competition closes. There is a second prize of £300 and a third prize of £200.

Simon Tompkins, manager of Hastings Adventure Golf said: “This is a great way of celebrating summer and everything that Hastings, as a quirky seaside town, has to offer.

“So get snapping and send them in to us, you’ll be helping a great local charity and you might just pocket some extra cash.”

Formed in 1900 by Hastings fishermen to help the under-privileged families of Hastings Old Town, the Winkle Club today is active in supporting a variety of local causes.

Earlier this year the Adventure Golf complex hosted the World Crazy Golf Championships, which saw miniature golf players from all over the globe descending on Hastings to take part and compete for a big prize pot.
