One snowflake makes a difference this Christmas

Support local charity, The Sara Lee Trust by writing a festive message on a snowflake to help raise much needed funds. The Trust’s Snowflake Campaign has returned for its second year and the charity is inviting everyone to get involved and support their work. Nikki Hawkes, the Trust’s fundraising assistant writes.

The Snowflake Campaign offers residents the chance to write a festive message on a snowflake in exchange for a donation to the Trust. The snowflakes will be on display in various stores around Hastings, St Leonards and Bexhill until 31 December.

This campaign is a paperless green solution for not sending cards and giving the cost of cards to a local charity. We would love to be able to fill Hastings and Rother with magical displays of snowflakes to raise money for the care and support of local people living with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.


If you would like to write a festive message on a snowflake, please visit your local Sara Lee Trust shop or Hastings Information Centre, The Lilac Room in Hastings Old Town, Teddy Tinker’s and Who’s Wearing What Boutique in St Leonards. Please visit the Trust’s website for a full list of snowflake stores.

You can also request a snowflake pack by emailing or calling 01424 420 264 and you can also take part online by visiting the Sara Lee Trust website.

Many schools and businesses will be having their own snowflake display. If you would like to create your own display in your school, college or workplace, please contact the Trust who will send you a free pack.

Every snowflake donation received will contribute directly to the provision of care for local people in need, so please support The Snowflake Campaign.

The Sara Lee Trust provides specialist counselling, complementary therapies and creative therapies to people in Hastings and Rother living through cancer and other life threatening illnesses; with support for their families and carers.
