Staff at local firm S&T Windows made a generous donation of £1,005 to St Michael’s Hospice .
The money was raised from a raffle and auction held during the company’s 40th anniversary celebration at Hastings United Club on Friday July 28.
Fantastic raffle prizes, which included an iPad from Phase Electrical, personal training and massages from Hastings United Club and a free door fitting by S&T Windows, raised £410 alone.
