Charity & Sponsorships

As a local retailer, Hatfields feel it important to support and give back to the local community. As such Hatfields chooses to support local charities and events through sponsorship, donating raffle prizes, making monetary donations and providing general help where we can. Here is a list of our recent charitable activities.


St Helena Hospice


Hatfields has been sponsoring St Helena Hospice as its chosen charity for a number of years now and in recent years has been privileged to help refurbish the nurse's staff room, donate chairs to the staff rooms, help towards the purchase of furniture and also sponsor the first and second Midnight Walks. Recently, charities have been suffering with much needed fundraising, so Hatfields try to help with donations and raffle prizes where possible.

Robert London, Merchandise Director at Hatfields, said: "We are always delighted to support St Helena Hospice and are aware just how much this wonderful organisation benefits the community. We are proud to be associated with all those many staff and volunteers who give their time to help raise funds for the Hospice, which works tirelessly for the good of their patients and their relatives."

Hatfields, together with the charity Emmaus, offer a collection service for your old furniture. Emmaus communities re-sell this furniture and generate an income which supports the Community; allowing them to achieve their aim that each Community becomes financially self-sufficient. Please be aware that at busy periods only, you may need to allow 3 or 4 weeks for collection. Emmaus accept upholstered furniture with Fire Safety Labels (Furniture and Furnishing Regs 1988) and good quality furniture in saleable condition.
