Several charities and community initiatives have responded rapidly to meet the needs of local people, for practical help and emotional support. The situation has changed quickly, and in some cases additional costs have been incurred in order to help people.
Hastings Voluntary Action is working with Hastings Borough Council, East Sussex County Council, local NHS, Hastings Emergency Action Response Team, Heart of Hastings, Hastings Foodbank and many others, to co-ordinate local efforts.
Hastings Voluntary Action has been asked to set up a Hastings Relief Fund to receive donations and distribute them quickly to local organisations that are helping local people during this pandemic.
Alternatively you can also donate directly into Hastings Voluntary Action's bank account: sort code 30 97 66 , account number 39261160 or send a cheque made payable to "Hastings Voluntary Action" to our address at Jackson Hall, Portland Place, Hastings, TN34 1QN.
