Hastings Direct's community programme — A Helping Hand — has donated £150 to the Battle Superstar Kids — an organisation which runs events and provides supports for families with special needs children.
Hastings Direct's A Helping Hand makes financial, professional and physical support available to the local community. Each month Hastings is able to offer either professional support from its 1,500+ staff, or physical support with team building days. In addition, Hastings has made a small monthly grant available to support local funding.
The money received from A Helping Hand has enabled Battle Superstar Kids to host a secure play event at 1066 Gymnastics which 20 families attended.
Jay Wootten, community liaison, Hastings Direct: "The importance of children being able to play freely and with their siblings without fear of unwanted attention should not be underestimated and we are delighted that our support has enabled this special play date to be organised."
