Local Charity of the Year

Each year we support another local charity that is making a difference to the lives of residents and the wider community.

King's Church Local Charity of the Year

We do this primarily by raising money for this charity at our special events, particularly our Christmas and Easter services, and through our car park over the Christmas season.

Local charities we have supported in the past include the Snowflake Night Shelter, Hope Kitchen, the Seaview Project, Surviving Christmas, and Friends of the Conquest.

As well as raising money, we also aim to build a relationship with each charity that lasts beyond the year that we support them. This has meant, for example, a team from King’s sleeping out in cardboard boxes overnight as part of the Seaview Project’s Big Sleep fundraising event.

This Year

Our current local charity of the year is HFS, which provides free or low cost furniture for Hastings, St Leonards and Bexhill residents on low incomes or benefits, runs workshops in women’s refuges, and gives starter packs to homeless people who are about to move into homes.

Nominate

We support each charity from September through to the following August, so if you would like to nominate a charity for our support in the future, please get in touch with us in the summer for consideration.
