The Sara Lee Trust 

The Sara Lee Trust aims to improve the lives and well-being of people affected by cancer and other life-threatening illnesses in the Hastings and Rother area through the provision, free of charge, of psychological and counselling support, creative and complementary therapies, and therapeutic group activities.

They are the dedicated provider of specialist end-of-life counselling and complementary therapy services to patients of St. Michael’s Hospice (St. Leonards on Sea) and the Rye, Winchelsea and District Memorial Hospital.

They are committed to making our service accessible to all in an area where deprivation, early death and health inequalities are significantly worse than the national average.  Complementary to medical care, the Trust offers time, meaningful touch and support, so that each person may live life as fully as possible, even with a life threatening diagnosis.
