welcome to HERO

The Hastings Equal Respect and Opportunity Organisation, or HERO, was created to provide the Hastings and surrounding communities with a central group that was accessible by anyone and to provide safe social and networking activities to any demographic, a place for everyone.

The aim of HERO is to cater for all individuals collectively through fun and exciting social events that will raise money and assist other community groups in the Greater-Hastings and create opportunities for them to promote themselves. A percentage of funds from these events and fundraising activities will be donated to other groups in the area to assist in their own opportunities.

HERO promotes and encourages respect towards one another and acceptance in the community regardless of any preference or identity.

— We can be your HERO
