We have been awarded a small Grassroots grant from the Sussex Community Foundation. They supported us because we showed that the 45 or so residents who volunteer to produce & deliver HN make a contribution to Hollingdean, by keeping you in touch with what’s going on locally.

This month we also raised £52 with a tombola and ‘tin can alley ‘at Dorothy Stringer fair and a very kind reader made a donation. If you have any fundraising ideas, are willing to help out with any HN activities or want to contribute copy or feedback please get in touch.
