Hedsor House, the privately-owned stately home in Buckinghamshire, awarded a £8,500 cheque to Heart of Bucks Charity on 23rd July.
Selected as the venue’s 2018/19 charity of the year by house owners the Shephard family, contributions were made at various fundraiser events and by couples marrying at Hedsor throughout the last twelve months.
Chair of Heart of Bucks Countess Elizabeth Howe said: “We are immensely grateful to Hedsor House for choosing us as their charity of the year. Heart of Bucks is a community foundation committed to improving the lives of local people through our grant funding. Hedsor House have raised a truly wonderful amount of money which will help to support the vital charities and community groups that are working tirelessly to
make positive change in Buckinghamshire.”
The Shephard family said: “Supporting and improving the lives of the people in our local community will always be a duty that we are passionate about. We are thrilled that, alongside our generous Hedsor House couples, we have managed to raise this sum for Heart of Bucks, and very much hope these funds can make a positive difference to some wonderful causes. Our charitable efforts at Hedsor are ongoing, and we endeavour to support fundraising initiatives such as these well into the future.” – Alexander, Janey, Nick, Mark & Hamish Shephard.
Hedsor is delighted to announce that their Charity of the Year for 2019/20 is the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, a cause very close to their hearts and for which they hope to raise similar and much needed funds in the forthcoming year ahead.
