Hastings Voluntary Action says a big thank-you to the army of local volunteers

Hastings Voluntary Action (HVA) has worked with a local photographer to capture portraits of volunteers from organisations across Hastings to celebrate Volunteers Week 2021.

Steve Manwaring, CEO of HVA, says: “National Volunteers Week is a perfect opportunity to thank and celebrate the work of local people who give up their time to support our local community organisations.
