Charity and Sponsorship


The Horton family has a long track record of supporting charitable causes both individually and via Hortons’ Estate.

In recent years, the company’s giving has been focussed on a charity chosen annually by its staff. Charities supported include Ward 19 at Heartlands Hospital, Birmingham Children’s Hospital, Beating Bowel Cancer, Fisher House at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Macmillan Cancer Support and Dementia UK.

In 2021, we are supporting Birmingham St Mary's Hospice.


Hortons’ Estate is proud to sponsor several local organisations generally focussed on young people and the arts.

Since 2001 we have been the sole corporate supporter of the award-winning Birmingham Symphonic Winds.

In 2012, we created an annual bursary for a student at Elmhurst Ballet School and this has so far enabled three exceptional students to compete their education and go on to begin a professional career.

We are also a corporate sponsor of the Birmingham Repertory Theatre.
