John’s story

Snowflake Night Shelter in Hastings & St Leonards saves lives and sets vulnerable people on the road to recovery. I am continuing my fundraising for this vital service by addressing my fear of heights again! Having previously done the (then) world's longest, highest & fastest zip wire, I am now attempting the Peacehaven abseil - Heaven help me - I am feeling very nervous, but it is in a great cause!!!


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

The Snowflake Trust

We provide supervised overnight accommodation to homeless people (our Guests) who would otherwise be sleeping rough in Hastings and St Leonards during the extreme winter months (end-November to mid-March).

Our Guests are referred to us by various local organisations, primarily the Seaview Project and the St John Ambulance Homeless Service, and also the Police and Hastings Borough Council Housing Department. 

We see this project as another way of reaching many who live 'life on the fringe'. It does much more than provide comfort and shelter on bitterly cold nights; it could be the start of a new life.


Registered Charity Number: 1119743.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
