Hands of Hope

Hands of Hope provide projects that connect people to nature and each other.

A grant from Sussex Community Foundation funded the group’s Lunch Club, covering the areas of Rye, Peasmarsh, Northiam, Beckley and Winchelsea. These rural areas can increase the social isolation felt by older residents, leading to poor health, loss of independence and a lower quality of life.
The Lunch Club provides a morning of fun, friendship and catching up followed by a delicious and nutritious two-course lunch and an afternoon of entertainment.
For many members the club is their only source of social interaction.

“I have been involved with Hands of Hope since 2018, volunteering initially at Peasmarsh Lunch Club and then taking on more activities, which keeps me active. Community social projects are extremely important not just for older members who attend the Club, but just as much for the volunteers who help deliver these projects."
