For ten weeks in the summer of 2022 the streets, gardens and beaches of Hastings, St Leonard's and Bexhill on Sea will be brought to life by a flock of fabulous Rubber Duck sculptures. Each giant duck will be hand decorated with individually created designs, many of which will showcase the wealth of artistic talent within East Sussex.
The ducks will create a free, fun, family friendly live art trail which will play an integral part in the economic, cultural and social recovery of Hastings and Rother, enticing locals and visitors back into our beautiful local area.
Ben Ferriman, Lightning Fibre CEO, said "Community engagement is very important to me and my team, and supporting St Michael's Hospice through our participation in 'Follow that Duck' makes a lot of sense - we cover the same areas with our Full Fibre Broadband. Our team and their families look forward to following the full trail and getting out into the fresh air and exploring the local areas we serve."
St Michael’s Hospice is committed to providing person-centred care which means they tailor their support to the need of each individual. The hospice works in partnership with patients and their families to identify what matters to them, what is making life difficult including troublesome symptoms or changes in day to day functioning, alongside any worries or spiritual concerns. A multi-disciplinary team then creates a personalised offer of palliative care support which is the best fit for the person at that moment, and adapts this if and when things change.
We have chosen our design and we look forward to sharing that with you soon.
