HDBS Donates money to local causes

We would like to express our gratitude to the public who supported and gave so generously to our bucket collectors on our event night back in October. We raised a staggering £1485.66 and have rounded this up allowing us to donate £1500!

We have now successfully handed over £250.00 to 1st Horam Scout Group and £250.00 to 1st Heathfield Scouts. £1000 has also been given to our members’ chosen charity for 2022, Hospice in the Weald.

We are currently shortlisting for local charities and causes we can support this year so please email any suggestions to hdbs.pr@gmail.com.
