The Journey so far.....Peasmarsh to Hawkhurst:
In 2016, Hands of Hope undertook its first “Growing” project in association with Robertsbridge Community College as well as joining forces with Northiam Seniors Lunch Club, where we now regularly cook. We have also acquired our first official “Live Life on the Veg Cook Van” which we hope to use at various events to help raise funds for our projects.
In 2017 we received planning permission for a new community facility in Hawkurst which we call “The Wall”, which will be our main base for the many projects we will run to help tackle childhood obesity and loneliness.
