We are passionate about supporting our local community, and so we thought we would share with you some of the fantastic people we have been able to work with this year.


Rye Jazz Festival

Rye Jazz Festival 2019 logoThe Rye Jazz & Blues Festival was held at the end of August, and we were proud to be one of the sponsors of this year’s event. For eight years now the Rye Jazz & Blues Festival has attracted thousands of new visitors to Rye. They come because they want to see and hear the best live music from top-class performers in intimate settings around the town - most of it free to enjoy.

Check out the festival’s website as there are some great musicians playing in Rye during October and December.


Battel Bonfire Boyes 10k (BBB10k)

The BBB10k was run at the beginning of September, and we sponsored this wonderful local event which starts in Battle High Street and ends at Battle Abbey.

We were delighted to be there on the day to support the event, take photos, cheer people on and hand out medals. It was a fantastic event that helped raise funds for the Battel Bonfire Boyes main event in November – the Guy Fawkes Celebrations.

1066 Charity Walk

St Michael’s Hospice and the Rotary Club of Battle organised the 1066 Charity walk to raise money for the Hospice and the Rotary.

St Michael’s Hospice needs to raise over £12,000 every day to keep running. To help with the costs of the event we sponsored the water so that all participants could stay hydrated during the walk.

Our colleague Glenn and his wife Sharon also signed up to walk the 16 miles from Pevensey to Battle to raise funds for the hospice.

But that didn’t stop Glenn and Sharon from honouring their commitment and walking 16 miles indoors on a treadmill, and of course we still contributed our corporate sponsorship for the event.

We would like to thank everyone that cheered Glenn and Sharon on by donating to the hospice. Don’t worry if you missed this event and still wish to contribute, you can visit our Facebook page and find the donate button to send your funds directly to St Michael’s Hospice.

Glenn and Sharon did an amazing job and raised £162 in total. You may also see our banners at the next fundraising event that St Michael's Hospice has, the Wag This Way 5k.


Renaissance Theatre Group

Renaissance Theatre Company performing Sweeney ToddThe Renaissance Theatre Company is a local theatre group based in Hastings East Sussex performing each year for St Michaels Hospice, Shazzie Sparkle Trust and other local charities. Their recent event Night of The Stars Musicals raised £1840. We are delighted to be supporting them this year as their main sponsor.
