At Batcheller Monkhouse we take pleasure in supporting our community. Every year we make an effort to support a wide variety of charities, events and organisations. From running our own charity events to sponsoring local clubs and schools, please see below some of our past efforts:

Charity

#WearItPink

In support of Breast Cancer Research and Breast Cancer Awareness Month, our Battle and Tunbridge Wells office took part in #WearItPink. We sourced all things pink, including delicious cake, pink attire, and office decorations. A big thank you to all who took part.

Little Princess Trust

Harriet Richardson, Associate Planner chopped off over 12 inches of hair and donated her locks to the Little Princess Trust. The charity provides free real hair wigs to children and young people, who have lost their hair through cancer treatment and other conditions. Well done Harriet!

Sussex Hospices Trail

Batcheller Monkhouse and Robert Batcheller have been proud sponsors of Friends of Sussex Hospices for a number of years. Every year the charity runs ‘The Sussex Hospices Trail’, a unique trail which encourages people to enjoy the Sussex countryside, whilst remembering friends or family and raising money. Well done to Fiona from our Battle office and all who took part, helping to raise money for an incredible cause.

Art Exhibition

On 11 December 2019, our Battle office hosted an Art Exhibition of internationally renowned local artists and photographers to raise money for charity. The exhibition was curated by Lucy Bell of Lucy Bell Galleries and artists who exhibited their work were Rosti Romanoff, Russell Dorey, Kirsten Reynolds, Bruce Rae and the late Michael Putland. The evening was a huge success and over £300 was raised for Friends of Sussex Hospices.

“This was a fun and different way of celebrating our 3 years at 68 High Street, whilst at the same time raising funds and awareness of Friends of Sussex Hospices for all the wonderful work they do. We were delighted to welcome Rosti Romanoff and Russell Dorey to the party and guests enjoyed hearing about their various art works”. Matthew Braxton, Partner.

Be Brave Don’t Shave

Several members of staff entered the annual Beating Bowel Cancer Decembeard challenge, encouraged by a colleague who was in the throes of cancer treatment. With the whole firm behind them, and the support of friends and family, an incredible £8,010 was raised.

“Despite protests from our nearest and dearest we all decided it was a small price to pay to raise money for this extremely worthwhile charity. Amazingly Batcheller Monkhouse raised the most of any team from across the whole country”. Simon Henkel, Partner.

Sponsorship

Batcheller Monkhouse are pleased to sponsor many local clubs and events including Claremont School Clarefest, Heathfield Show, Fletching Open Garden, Plumpton College, Mark Cross Primary School Fete, Brightling Flower Show and more.

Ex Endurro

We were pleased to support the Exe Endurro Round Britain Challenge. A team of 4 young men planned to row around Britain in July 2020 in support of Just One Ocean and the British Red Cross. The team who had no prior rowing experience, left Tower Bridge in London on the 5 July to start the 2,000-mile GB Row Challenge 2020, known as one of the toughest races in the world.

Newick Cricket Club

Our Haywards Heath office are thrilled to continue their long relationship with Newick Cricket Club. As main sponsor in 2021, we look forward to our continued partnership. Keep an eye out for the new merchandise and here is hoping for a successful season starting in Spring.

Don’t Leave Anyone Behind this Christmas

In 2020 the Haywards Heath Town Council ran a campaign called ‘Don’t leave anyone behind this Christmas’. The aim was to spread Christmas spirit, light and love to the local elderly and vulnerable residents. Christmas care bags were delivered to the residents and Batcheller Monkhouse were proud to sponsor the cause.

Mayfield Country Market Christmas Fair

In October 2020, our Tunbridge Wells branch sponsored the Mayfield Christmas Fair. We ‘spread the word’ with our boards and offered Batcheller Monkhouse goody bags to visitors. With everyone following the Covid-19 guidance, the day was successful and safe.
