Hands of Hope

Local Charity Calls For Donations For Their Auction of Hope. Hands of Hope, the charity using growing and cooking healthy, nutritious food to tackle childhood obesity and loneliness asks you to turn your preloved into reloved to help them raise funds.

Are you having a spring clean or a big clear out? Then Hands of Hope want to hear from you. We all know the saying ‘One man’s junk is another man’s treasure’ and here is your chance to turn your unwanted goods into cash for this inspirational charity.

With childhood obesity and loneliness being two of the biggest challenges in the 21st century, the organisation will tackle these issues through developing their scheme at their newly acquired site in Hawkhurst, making it a place to grow, learn, meet and enjoy.

But first they need to raise more funds and ask that you contribute your surplus items to them, which will then be auctioned from Rye Auction Rooms and on Ebay. Whether you have coins, rugs, antiques, books, furniture, vintage clothes, glassware… well, virtually anything of value… these could be turned into cash to benefit your community.

Please contact the team via the links below and arrange to donate your items. Collection is possible in certain circumstances.

The contact details are the same if you would like to find out more about what Hands of Hope does. Maybe you would like to volunteer your time to help? There are plenty of varied roles available!

Hands of Hope aims to reconnect people with where their food comes from, teach them how to grow and cook healthy and nutritious food and use this process to ultimately reduce childhood obesity and also loneliness in older people.

Currently farming 4 acres of organic land in Peasmarsh, the charity needs to raise £1.4m to develop an 18 acre site in Hawkhurst, Kent, ‘The Wall’. They will create a kitchen garden, a cooking school, greenhouse, seminar room and more. The site will also serve as a valuable community and activity centre for young children, families and the elderly. Hope Farm, Tillingham Lane, Peasmarsh, East Sussex, TN316XG Tel; 01424 834768.
