At Haggards Crowther, we are proud to be supporters of two charities:
- The Samaritans
- The Mabula Ground Hornbill Project
We also sponsor three brilliant young teams:
- Barnes RFC
- Hammersmith and Fulham Rugby Club
- Reeds Weybridge RFC
The Samaritans is a Charity that provides emotional support to those feeling isolated or struggling with emotional distress, helping to prevent the risk of suicide. The Samaritans respond to a call for help every 10 seconds and are there to help those struggling to cope without any pressure or judgement.
It is a charity close to many people’s hearts. Most recently, on 9/9/23, 11 members of the Haggards Crowther team walked the 25km Thames Bridge Trek to raise funds for The Samaritans. We raised a phenomenal £3,800 on Just Giving.
The Mabula Ground Hornbill Project
The Mabula Ground Hornbill Project is a cause very close to our Managing and Founding Partner, Andrew Haggard’s heart.
The Charity works to protect and conserve Southern Ground-Hornbills. This species of bird is categorised as a vulnerable species throughout their sub-equatorial range in Africa, and endangered in South Africa and Namibia.
The Mabula Ground Hornbill Project helps to protect the species by harvesting chicks that would have died of starvation if left in the wild, by artificially rearing them.
They also re-wild these artificially-reared chicks in carefully managed groups. Another way that the Charity helps these birds is by providing artificial ‘super nests’ to groups that have no nests or poor nests.
The Mabula Ground Hornbill Project also researches the genetics and behaviour of Ground Hornbills to promote the successful conservation management of the species.
Their nationwide campaigns help to raise the funds needed to protect the species. You can read more about the Charity here.
We are also proud sponsors of Barnes RFC. Established back in the 1920s, Barnes Rugby Football Club has a rich history – something we are delighted to be a part of.
Haggards Crowther also proudly sponsors Hammersmith and Fulham Rugby Club. Once a Hammer, always a Hammer!
We are also sponsoring the Reeds Weybridge RFC.
