We will also give more details on the day and we ask that all volunteers are flexible. Each of the Project days start at 9.30am and finish by 4.30pm – the afternoon shifts start at 1pm. We look forward to working with you at the Salvation Army Hall, St Andrews Square, Hastings.

Guest Christmas 2014, Hastings

I really appreciate your kindness and the items you delivered, and a gift, of a much-needed wrap to put around my shoulders. It was all very wonderful. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
