TARGET £500.00

£ / £500


Strummerville-On-Sea is a fundraising event organised by the Joe Strummer Foundation in their new seaside home.

Our fundraising target for the event is £500.00 – if you can, please donate. Proceeds from this event will go to Make Waves (formerly Live in the Valley), which has been running in Hastings and Rother for over 15 years and has supported thousands of young local people to become young musicians and providing creative opportunities in areas of high deprivation.

We need your support & donations …

Make Waves is one of the most high valued local projects, resulting in gigs, new music and a positive activity for young people in an area that has struggled to offer them opportunities. The program is delivered in partnership between Rhythmix and East Sussex Targeted Youth Support and we are very proud to be working with them.
