The call is now open for the sixth round of Foreshore Trust’s grant programme. The programme will offer awards of up to £6000 to support smaller voluntary and community groups in carrying out activities, services and events which benefit and support the local community within Hastings &
St. Leonards.

The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Friday 15 July. This round of funding is for events and activities that are set to happen between October 2022 and September 2023.

Cllr Ali Roark, Chair of the Charity Committee, said: “There are so many organisations in Hastings and St Leonards doing incredible work, and we want to help support as many as we can with the funding the Foreshore Trust provides. Examples from the previous rounds including funding for new lifejackets for Hastings & St Leonards Voluntary Lifeguard Club, contributing to the Hastings Storytelling Festival and supporting counsellors working to help young people with their mental health. We look forward to seeing the fantastic applications we get in for this round.”
