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.

These images shared on HVA’s website and social media pages are part of a wider campaign to thank volunteers for their commitment to helping others during lockdown.

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.

“Hastings has an amazing network of community organisations supported by teams of volunteers of all ages and backgrounds. Our town would not be the same without them and I am proud on behalf of the Voluntary sector to be leading HVA’s recognition of these exceptional people.”
