30 years of local giving

To mark HCF's 30th Anniversary we have produced a special celebratory publication which showcases ten organisations we are proud to have supported. It also summarises some of our key successes and gives an overview of our history.

Give where you live

There has been much change over the past 30 years but one things remains. Every year HCF has to turn down deserving requests for support due to insufficient funding. It is only thanks to the generosity of our supporters that HCF has achieved what it has but there is a great way to go. If you have ever considered giving to charity please consider supporting HCF. By giving to HCF you know that every one pound you donate will stay within the county helping tackle need and deprivation.
