To find out more about The Sara Lee Trust, visit saraleetrust.org.

“Tickets for Hastings Beatles Day are £10, which will help the trust continue to support some of the most vulnerable and isolated people in your area through this extremely difficult time.

“A prize draw and online memorabilia shop will also accompany the event. For more details and to purchase your ticket, visit hastingsbeatlesday.com.”

The Sara Lee Trust aims to improve the lives and well-being of people affected by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses in the Hastings and Rother area through the provision, free of charge, of psychological and counselling support, creative and complementary therapies, and therapeutic group activities.

“We are the dedicated provider of specialist end-of-life counselling and complementary therapy services to patients of St Michael’s Hospice (St Leonards on Sea) and the Rye, Winchelsea and District Memorial Hospital. We are committed to making our service accessible to all in an area where deprivation, early death and health inequalities are significantly worse than the national average. Complementary to medical care, the trust offers time, meaningful touch and support.”
