For over 40 years, supporting our local community has always been a priority to Burgess Hodgson and a cornerstone of the firm. In addition to providing a full range of quality financial services to our local businesses and individuals, we still remain strong in promoting our local area throughout a range of fields.
We are a keen advocate of local education. Our firm has grown organically as one team, and the large majority of our Partners and Associates joined us as trainees from the surrounding area. We are currently sponsoring the Langton School and the upcoming St. Edmund’s School Music Festival. We are also frequent supporters of The University of Kent, Canterbury Christ Church University, and Kent College.
Local sport is another area we promote fervently. As well as remaining loyal sponsors of Adalta Cycling Club, Canterbury Rugby Club, Chestfield Golf Club, and Canterbury Hockey Club, we have also been involved in a range of local sporting events including our own firm’s teams, such as the successful BHFC, Touch rugby, Netball, charity bike rides, rounders and cricket.
Over the years we have raised funds for numerous local charities who we believe do invaluable work within our community. We are currently raising money for the Canterbury Wheelchair Rugby charity. We have also raised money for Pilgrims Hospice, Martha Trust, Snaap, Porchlight, Demelza, The Kent Air Ambulance, The East Kent Breast Cancer Mammography appeal, St. Nicholas School and Dave Lee’s Happy Holidays, and others.
Retail & Entertainment
We also back local events and entertainment including Fenwicks Christmas shopping, The Hop Pocket Race, Marlowe Theatre, The Kent & Canterbury Club, Canterbury ARTS Council, and Top Choir Competition.
