Our partnership with
The Branch

Jump to: Raffle | Silent Auction

At Hedges, we have a long history of philanthropy, stretching back over 230 years. Opening a new office in Chipping Norton provides us with a wonderful opportunity to get involved in charitable work in a new area.

We are delighted to partner with local charity The Branch Trust. Based in Chipping Norton’s Market Place, in the heart of the town, The Branch helps families in West Oxfordshire where opportunities for children and young people rank in the bottom 10% in the Country. The Branch and team of volunteers provide help to locals of all ages, from children who are facing educational or mental health challenges to adults fleeing domestic violence and older people struggling with loneliness.

The Hedges team will be supporting The Branch by committing our time and knowledge to delivering mentoring support and offering life advice, as well as through fundraising. To celebrate the launch of our new office, we’re hosting a silent auction and raffle to support The Branch, with a range of wonderful prizes.
