Lin and Paul are going trekking in Wales to raise money for The Hop50+
Hop50+ Centre Manager Lin Hastings will be embarking on a 186 mile trek with husband Paul at the beginning of July. Help Lin and Paul reach their £1,000 target by sponsoring them  through JustGiving: Click here to visit Lin and Paul’s JustGiving page. “The Hop50+ is a fantastic local charity project based in Hove, East Sussex offering a community space and cafe to vulnerable and isolated people aged over 50.

Please give what you can to support this valuable, life enhancing service for people in later life.”  ...
