The Sara Lee Trust has been providing specialist counselling and therapy care and support, for over 20 years, to local people who are living with cancer and other life-threatening conditions, along with their family and carers.
The Trust is also the dedicated provider of specialist counselling and complementary therapy services to patients of St Michael’s Hospice (St Leonards on Sea) and the Rye, Winchelsea and District Memorial Hospital.
All the directors and staff at SLM feel very proud to be involved in raising money for such a great cause that helps our local community. For every new or used car that we sell across the group, we will make a donation to the trust. So far, we have donated of over £16,000 to the charity, picture below is SLM's latest donation to the Sara Lee Trust.

Dan Redsull, Chief Executive of the Trust is absolutely thrilled that St Leonards Motors have chosen to support their work. Not only will the partnership help improve awareness of and access to their care and support, it will significantly assist with their ability to deliver sustainable services in the future and meet the growing level of local need for their services.
Jo, a user of the Sara Lee Trust services, commented: "The Sara Lee Trust were a great support to me during my own breast cancer treatment by giving me someone to talk to and a time for me to be supported and helped through aromatherapy massage. I will always be grateful to them and endeavour now, to give them my time through volunteering in different roles, to try and help others going through cancer and other life threatening illnesses.
"It's wonderful to see St. Leonards Motors making such a wonderful and appreciated contribution to the work of the Sara Lee Trust helping others to benefit from their services - thank you so much."
