New charity shop opens

HASTINGS Trust has opened a pop-up charity shop next door to their main offices in Robertson Street.

Pictured at the opening event on March 23 are Uncle Sam, Brittania, and Come Dine With Me contestants Stelios Michael, and councillor Andrew Batsford.

Samuel-Gene Rawlinson, from Hastings Trust, said: “We are absolutely amazed at the amount of donations and support received from the public.

“As with all charities we are struggling to find funding opportunities and we hope that this will help us to raise money to continue to serve the people of Hastings.”

Donations are welcome and can be dropped into the shop at 34 Robertson Street or call 01424 446373 and speak to Samuel or Indra to arrange collection. Photograph by John Willy.
