Thank you to all who donated

Once again we would be grateful if you could publish our thanks to the local people of Hastings and St Leonards who so generously supported our 2015 Tree of Light Appeal.

Our total this year was over £2,100, raised by local people donating a minimum of £5 each to buy a light in loving memory of a departed friend or relative, on our Christmas tree in the town Centre.

The money raised is all used to support local people and local charities supporting local people in Hastings and St Leonards at Christmas.

We would also like to acknowledge, publicly, our thanks to the Halifax Building Society for accepting the donation forms and to Hastings Borough Council.

Thank you also for your part in supporting and publicising our appeal, without which, we would find it very difficult to raise public awareness.
