£100,000 still needed to save the pier!

The final push to persuade the administrators that the Friends of Hastings Pier can muster the financial support to run the pier is under way – the fund-raising effort is being ratcheted up to maximum to secure backing of £500,000 by the end of the month – 9pm on Thursday 31 May to be precise. HOT’s Nick Terdre (also one of the Friends) reports.

Pier friends’ bank holiday fundraising stymied

The Friends of Hastings Pier have been given more time to demonstrate their ability to fund their bid but plans to use one of the kiosks on the pier as a base for publicising the fundraising campaign over the bank holiday weekend have been rejected. Nick Terdre reports.

The pier needs your support!

The Friends of Hastings Pier (FoHP) are urging all pier supporters to attend the public meeting called for Monday 23 April to make clear to administrators and stakeholders that there is mass backing for keeping the pier in community hands. Meanwhile a bid to bring Hastings Pier Charity out of administration has been submitted to the administrators. HOT’s Nick Terdre (also a member of FoHP) has been updated on the current state of the campaign by another member, Jim Breeds.
