Hastings Direct has donated £13,000 as part of colleague's efforts throughout the summer to support one of their charity partners for 2015 — Charity for Kids.

Staff at its head office in Bexhill has been competing in a range of sports since June with all proceeds, along with monies raised at a recent awards night, being donated to the charity.

Jay Wootten, community liaison at Hastings Direct said, "The summer of sport has been a real team effort and colleagues have competed in a range of events to raise money to help make a difference. We are delighted to have raised this amount which we know will make a huge difference."

As a local charity made up purely of volunteers, we rely on fundraising effort like this to support the work we do."
