Surviving Christmas is run by a group of Trustees and supported by volunteers who all local to the area. Each of us have different skills that we bring to the charity but we all have one thing in common. We are passionate about Surviving Christmas and the work it does on relieving hardship and distress to those in need of assistance.

Our Objectives

The objectives of Surviving Christmas are – to relieve in cases of need, hardship or distress persons who are resident, whether temporarily or not, in the County Borough of Hastings or the Rother District in the County of East Sussex.

We support those in need as referred by professional agencies through one of our projects.

Who We Are

We, the trustees of Surviving Christmas are all volunteers who give up our time to run the project around our everyday commitments.

With backgrounds in the British Army, Lift Engineering, Banking, the Probation Service, Property Management and the Police, we bring quite a wide range of different experiences and knowledge to the work we do but we all have one thing in common. We are passionate about Surviving Christmas and the work it does on relieving hardship and distress to those in need of assistance.
