The Sara Lee Trust

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

We 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.

The Sara Lee Trust operates four charity shops in Hastings, St Leonards-on-Sea and Bexhill, which stock a wide range of donated goods, the sale of which help to funds our services.

What is Shiatsu? 

“A traditional hands-on Japanese healing art, Shiatsu can help in a wide range of conditions from specific injuries to more general symptoms of poor health. Shiatsu is a deeply relaxing experience and regular sessions help to prevent the build-up of stress in our daily lives.”
The Shiatsu Society
