HAILSHAM Hockey Club is looking to raise around £25,000 to contribute towards the resurfacing of its home pitch at Hailsham Community College which is nearing the end of its life. 

The campaign, along with funds from the school and other organisations, will enable the existing pitch to be resurfaced to secure the future of the club and also provide a much-valued facility for not only the Hockey Club but also the school and wider community that use it. 

The hockey club has made the school its home since the original pitch was laid over 20 years ago. The surface is well beyond its intended life and is close to not being playable. 

The club launched a crowdfunding campaign last month and will last for eight weeks where anyone can donate any amount to the campaign via the club’s website. It is also looking for local businesses to support the club long-term with sponsorship.

Hailsham Hockey Club player, Rachel Forss (pictured), helped to launch the campaign ‘Pitch In’. Rachel has been conducting research in her role at the University of Brighton on the gravitational effects on lower limb circulation. This led to the opportunity to experience weightlessness during parabolic flights from Bordeaux, France. On one of these flights, she took the opportunity to launch the hockey club’s fundraising efforts. 

Hailsham Hockey Club has over 100 active members within our junior, men’s and women’s teams.

Anyone can donate and get more information by visiting:  https://hailshamhockey.co.uk/pitchIn
