The Horton family has a long track record of supporting charitable causes both individually and through 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 2022, we are supporting the Neonatal Unit at Birmingham Women's Hospital Charity.
Dearbhla Craddock, Corporate Partnership Officer at Birmingham Women's and Children's NHS Foundation Trust, said:
"Birmingham Women’s Hospital Charity is passionate about improving patient experience for all the women, babies and families at the hospital. Thanks to its kind and generous supporters, it strives to provide patients with a service over and above what the hospital alone can deliver.
"This includes welfare services to support patients through difficult times and conversations, the purchase of innovative equipment, helping to make processes more efficient and enhance patient experiences, funding research and development of cures, treatments and new technology, and building and refurbishment to keep the hospital appealing, current and cared for."
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.
