Welcome to ESVH Blog
We wish to keep you up to date with our activities, successes and challenges, in real time, hoping it offers a broader picture of our operations.
We would like to register our thanks to those people and organisations that have contributed towards our sustainability over the past 4 years.
The Silver Lady Fund - Annual grants that provided the foundation finance to bring us to this point. Without them ESVH would not exist.
East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service who in the early days provided us with free accommodation, again essential for our meetings. Unfortunately, it proved incompatible with veterans with PTSD, some sounds acted as triggers.
SSAFA Hastings & Rother Division caseworkers. A stalwart team of dedicated volunteers that were totally supportive from 2016 – 2020. In addition, SSAFA’s Head of Welfare for advice and guidance over that period.
Lions Club of Hastings/SENLAC Round Table for supporting our trips to Normandy.
The Black Horse Lewes for their collection and donations.
Cranbrook Army Cadets for Walking Bewl Water, Lamberhurst, to raise funds for ESVH.
St Dunstan’s Church Cranbrook for their donation from Armed Forces Day 2019.
Hastings & St Leonards Veterans’ Association for their donations.
East Sussex County Council during 2019 helping us develop our interest in alcohol and substance misuse. This is ongoing for 2020 and again we look forward to working with ESCC.
East Sussex Recovery Alliance (ESRA) working as partners to open up services for veterans in the community.
Hastings Voluntary Action for help with financial management and accommodation.
Plus a big thank you to many others who have shown interest and support and co-operation.
