Podcast features HFS

HFS featured in Tiernan Douieb’s Partly Political Podcast

Tiernan compered our fantastic comedy fund-raiser in May and wanted to feature HFS as part of Small Charities Week.

We talk about the challenges and joys of running a small local charity, the issues affecting people in our area, how policies affect us and how people can get involved and support us.
