Spring events at St Michael’s Hospice


Easter Bunny Hop

Are you thinking of new ways to entertain the little ones this Easter? Join St Michael’s Hospice on Saturday, 1 April from 10am – 12pm at 25 Upper Maze Hill, St Leonards on Sea, TN38 0BL for their popular Easter Bunny Hop.

Explore the bunny trail to collect tokens in exchange for a delicious Easter egg and use your bunny-like senses to discover the hidden rabbit hole to be in with a chance of winning a prize. There will also be Easter craft activities for the whole family to enjoy. Children’s entry is £3.50 (including refreshments), and adults are £1.50. No prior booking needed, just hop down on the day.

Could you help the Hospice raise an extra £15,000 this spring by entering their Lottery Special Draw?

On Friday, 12 May, the St Michael’s Hospice Lottery team will run a special draw where one lucky supporter will win a £3,000 top prize. There are 104 other cash prizes up for grabs too. Enter today and you could be treating yourself to a well-deserved holiday, just like a previous Lottery top prize winner: “I used my win to rent a large, converted barn in Canterbury for 15 of my family, including four great-grandchildren. We all had the best time together.”

Will you be the lucky £3,000 top prize special draw winner? Purchase your Lottery Special Draw tickets from the Lottery team on 01424 456384 or email lottery@stmichaelshospice.com

Booking appointments for donation drop-offs

St Michael’s Hospice is extremely grateful to everyone who donates their pre-loved items for them to sell on their eBay shop, or across their seven high street shops in Hastings and Rother. If you plan to donate your items, please remember to give them a call beforehand on 01424 728728 to book a donations drop-off appointment at their Donation Centre. The appointment line is open from 10am – 2pm, Monday to Friday. By doing so, the Hospice can ensure the Retail team is ready to assist you with your donations and not block the limited space available in and around the Donation Centre. Without a prior appointment, the team will not be able to accept your generous donations.

If you’re having a 2023 clear-out, the Hospice is currently in need of excellent quality furniture and would appreciate any items you may wish to give. By donating your pre-loved items you are helping St Michael’s Hospice to support and enable the community of Hastings and Rother to live well with dying, death, and loss.
