Volunteering pop-up

HVA (Hastings Voluntary Action) will be running a regular volunteering pop-up within our pop-up store in Priory Meadow from the start of September.

We’re delighted to host HVA and encourage people to volunteer. Getting involved with local community groups can help you feel more connected to others, boost your skills and confidence, and help if you are looking for work. Good local charities like HFS need a team of dedicated volunteers; when we work together we can make a huge difference.

At the pop-up sessions, experts from HVA will be on hand to talk to you and help you find volunteering opportunities that suit your skills, interests and goals.

Tuesdays:            2 – 4

Wednesdays:    10 – 12

Fridays:                12 – 2

Plus – First Saturday of the month: 10 – 12

And you can read about volunteering with HFS here.

Not all

We couldn’t collect, reuse and deliver over 300 tonnes of furniture and electrical goods every year without our team of amazing volunteers like Dan.

Dan is volunteering at HFS Bexhill while he is looking for work.

Store Manager Gerald says “Since he started volunteering, Dan has gained the experience and confidence to play a full part in the team. He’s a real asset for us, helping out with collections and deliveries, and also helping in the store. It’s great to see people like Dan join us and develop their skills so they can move on into work.”

Be like Dan! If you can spare a few hours, we need more volunteers at both stores most days, including Saturdays. Find out more about volunteering here.

New Year courses

There’s still time to grab a place on one of our New Year courses.

Whether you fancy trying carpentry for the first time, want to polish up your furniture restoration skills or learn how to put up wallpaper, our courses cover practical skills you can use at home.

We run supportive, friendly, small groups of adults so it’s easy to join in and enjoy the experience.
