The funds will help us support volunteers to gain skills, confidence and experience. A lot of our volunteers need support to take on their role with us and to build up towards moving on into training or work. With your support we can help more people.
Voting runs through November and December 2017.
The event at White Rock Theatre raised over £500 towards HFS workshops at local women’s refuges.
Hastings Burlesque founder, Izzy Crouch said “Founding an event like this in my home town is a real privilege. I am delighted to be raising money for HFS. I know full well that life doesn’t always run smoothly and have used HFS’ services during a tricky patch in my life. I don’t know what I would have done without them. I am pleased to be able to give back to this wonderful charity that does so much for the local community.”

The whole HFS team got together for our Summer meal; a thank-you for our volunteers and staff who work so hard all year round. The photographers from ZoomArts took the opportunity to get a photo of everyone together on the beach.
ZoomArts is a local community group that helps photographers share skills, develop expertise and exhibit work.
