Our Charities

Money raised for charity so far this year


Hatchers have an extremely active fundraising calendar, holding both internal and external events to raise money for charity.

Each year the firm supports two charities, which are nominated by Hatchers’ staff. This means that often the charities are very personal to the firm and all staff get involved in raising money. Internally we hold bake sales, dress down days and luncheons to name a few. Over the last few years the staff have walked the Yorkshire Three Peaks, completed various sporting challenges and taken part in lots of other fundraising activities.

This year we are supporting:

Sands - Stillbirth and Neonatal Death Charity

Sands is a UK charity that works across the country to support anyone affected by the death of a baby; improve the care bereaved parents receive from health care and other professionals; and reduce the number of babies who do die by funding research and working closely with other organisations to create a world where fewer babies die.

Sands was founded by bereaved parents in 1978 who found that there was no access to support following the deaths of their babies. Since then Sands has grown, but parents who have experienced baby death are still at the core of everything they do.

Thanks to their supporters, Sands are also able to fund research to help answer the questions that surround stillbirth and neonatal death. They fund some research directly and support other studies by helping to recruit participants or acting as co-applicants on funding applications.

Severn Hospice

Severn Hospice gives specialist care and support free of charge to families across Shropshire and Mid Wales who are living with an incurable illness.

They support families through the good days and bad days and believe that when cure is no longer possible, care is. Since 1989, they have given free care and support to more than 27,000 patients and their loved ones during their time of greatest need. They now help more than 2,800 local people every year.

The hospice is part of health services offered to people living in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Mid Wales but is not part of the NHS. They are a completely independent charity, and have to raise around two-thirds of their running costs.

The care provided to thousands of people every year is only possible thanks to the generous support the hospice receives from the communities it serves. The services are funded through a combination of kind donations from local people, fundraising activities, their lottery and retail departments, gifts in people’s wills and grants from the NHS.
