Our Charity Partnership

After many years of supporting and sponsoring various local organisations, we decided in 2014 that we would prefer to concentrate our efforts by predominantly supporting one local charity each year.

In this way, we felt as a firm that we could:

Proudly sponsor a local charity and support the work that they do for our local community

Promote a partnership with the charity, working together to achieve specific aims or goals

Our nominated charity for 2019 is JDRF

Our nominated charity for 2019 is the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF)
 
JDRF funds research into the cure, treatment and prevention of type 1 diabetes. It is their aim to help develop new treatments to keep people with type 1 as healthy as possible until they find the cure. Ultimately, they want to prevent people from getting the condition at all. 

They work with government, academia and industry to accelerate research in the UK and within healthcare policy to ensure that the outcomes of research are delivered to people with type 1 in the UK. They also give support and a voice to people with type 1 and their families.
 
Further information on the charity can be found on their website www.jdrf.org.uk

Humphrey & Co also participates in numerous local charity events and fundraisers. We actively encourage members of staff to independently volunteer and be involved in the work of other charities in the local area. 

Past Charities

Our nominated charity for 2018 was
Embrace East Sussex

Embrace was formed in 2014 to support special needs and disabled children and their families with their ethos being 'Because no child should feel alone'. Embrace run a number of services and projects, providing vital social and respite support as well as advocacy support for its beneficiaries.

Our nominated charity for 2017 was
You Raise Me Up

A local charity based in Eastbourne founded by Fraser and Jane Brooks in June 2011 following the sudden loss of their daughter Megan. The charity’s sole purpose is to raise funds to support families that have suffered the loss of an adult child between the age of 16 and 25 and to be able to provide compassion, support and to simply be able to say “we totally understand” rather than “we cannot imagine what you are going through”.

Our nominated charity for 2016 was
RISE

RISE (Refuge, Information, Support and Education) - freedom from domestic abuse. A National Award winning charity providing sanctuary and support in Sussex since 1994.
This is a Brighton-based charity offering practical solutions, shelter and support to those in Sussex affected by domestic abuse. They work alongside survivors giving practical support to help them rebuild their lives.

Our nominated charity for 2015 was
Sussex Cancer Fund

Since 1981 The Sussex Cancer Fund has been giving invaluable assistance to The Sussex Cancer Centre at the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton. This is in the form of additional equipment and building improvements for the treatment and comfort of cancer patients attending the department. The Centre treats thousands of Sussex people each year.

Our nominated charity for 2014 was
Children’s Respite Trust in East Hoathly

This charity is largely run by volunteers and supports children with disabilities and their families by helping them get a break throughout Sussex, Surrey and Kent. Vital to all of their work is fundraising to help the limited number of families they can reach with the money they raise.

Networking

As a firm we feel it’s important to engage in business networking to develop new relationships with local contacts, sharing ideas and discussing topical issues.

We also realise how invaluable networking is for our staff for building their confidence and expanding their portfolio of contacts.

We also attend numerous networking events in East Sussex including, but not limited to, breakfast and lunch clubs, the local Curry Clubs and networking on the golf course.

Ladies Lunch Club Eastbourne

We currently host and sponsor the Ladies Lunch Club held at The Grand Hotel in Eastbourne. These events provide the ideal platform for members to share their knowledge and experience with other like-minded businesswomen from the local area.
