Charitable Giving

Throgmorton lends its support to a number of charities, both nationally and community-based.

We do this through a combination of straight corporate donations and by providing an environment which encourages individual staff and teams to participate in charitable events and fundraising. Our people are enthusiastic, and have championed many good causes including:

The Lord's Taverners
The Lord's Tavereners charitable mission is to give a ‘sporting chance’ to young people in need; those who through physical, mental, social, environmental or economic disadvantage, not of their own making, would otherwise miss out.  The Lord's Taverners were the chosen charity to benefit from the 2012 Throgmorton Cricket Challenge and Summer Garden Party.

Sport Relief
Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives.  Most people in the office took part in the Sport Relief Mile with a theme of silly headwear!

The Prostate Cancer Charity & Cricket for Change
The Prostate Cancer Charity helps fight the most common cancer in men.  Cricket for Change uses cricked to do good amongst disadvantaged communities of young people.  A raffle and auction at the 2011 Throgmorton Cricket Challenge and Summer Garden Party raised money for these 2 charities.

In addition, we have regular firm fund raising days that are hugely popular with our staff, but ultimately raise significant funds for events such as Red Nose Day, Sports ReliefMIND and Children in Need.

All these charities are very deserving of support, and we would be delighted if you would pay their websites a visit.

"..Most importantly, their team is knowledgeable, efficient and extremely committed to excellent client service.."
