For 2022/23, HSBC Private Banking UK has chosen to support Hestia as their local Charity. I'm inspired by the work Hestia and its volunteers do to support those affected by Domestic Abuse and Modern Slavery. With the current cost of living crisis causing an increase in the numbers and needs of service users, your donations have never been as vital as they are right now to Hestia.

I'm fundraising to support adults and children in London and the south east to a life beyond crisis.

Hestia is a charity that supports adults and children in London and the south east during times of crisis, including people who have experienced domestic abuse and modern slavery, people struggling with their mental health, older people and ex-offenders.

Last year Hestia supported more than 14,000 adults and children.

Hestia's services are wide-ranging, and help to address people's emotional and practical needs, whether that's by providing them with a home, offering them support in the community, or working with them to access education or work opportunities. Hestia is also supported by nearly 1,000 volunteers across London who provide specialist skills such as art therapy, yoga, IT, gardening, and cooking.

Please support me in achieving my target, and help the thousands of women and children supported by Hestia to a life beyond crisis.
