Surviving Christmas is a small charity run by a group of trustees and volunteers from within the local area. The charity is aimed at relieving cases of need, hardship or distress around the Christmas period to persons who are resident, whether temporarily or not, in the County Borough of Hastings, Rother District and the County of East Sussex.
FreshOnline was set the task of creating a website for Surviving Christmas to help better serve those in need as well as the volunteers looking to support the charity. Prior to this, they had been using paper-based systems to handle things like signing up volunteers. For Surviving Christmas we created a multi-page website to not only give them an online presence and help raise awareness but we also added in a bespoke booking system where volunteers could digitally sign up to support the charity. FreshOnline have continued to support Surviving Christmas with technical support and maintenance of their new website.
