Where it all began… with eight-year-old Riley and 1,000 burpees

No review of the year would be complete without showcasing where it all began.

Riley Davis is an inspiring little boy who just wanted to help others and he set himself the goal of doing 1,000 burpees – no one’s favourite exercise – to raise cash to help Dom’s Food Mission. When we heard about Riley’s story it was the catalyst that turned our dream of setting up this website into a reality.

We hope you have enjoyed what we have done in 2018 and we have lots more planned for 2019. If you’ve got a friend or neighbour who hasn’t yet heard about Hastings in Focus then spread the work and tell them to visit www.hastingsinfocus.co.uk

If you have a story you’d like us to cover or you run a sports club or team that needs to some extra publicity then contact us either through social media of by email at tellmeyourstory@hastingsinfocus.co.uk

In the meantime click the links below and enjoy Riley’s story and marvel and his determination to help others.
