We have chosen West Kent Mind as our Charity of the Year. They are the local branch of the national mental health charity Mind and offer a wide range of community services in Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells and across West Kent.
Their aim is to support anybody in our community who is struggling with mental health issues, whether it is long or short term.
For a number of years, Hilden Park have entered a team into the Tonbridge Dragon Boat Race. It’s a fantastic opportunity for us to raise money for our Charity of the Year.
This year we have taken the opportunity to sponsor a local athlete – Harry Kendall – to help him achieve his ambition to become an international Decathlete.
Harry is a great role model and motivator by using sport to encourage young people to keep healthy and maintain active lifestyles.
Over the last few years Harry has gained many achievements in both local and national competitions and we're really excited to join him on his journey to become part of Team GB at World Championships and Olympic level!
We have been members of the West Kent Chamber of Commerce for over 10 years now and at least one of our Directors regularly attends the monthly networking events in and around Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells. It is a great opportunity to connect with other local businesses of varying sectors and an excellent way of building those lasting business relationships.
We continue to sponsor the Annual Golf Day hosted by the Chamber. This has always been a highly successful event and another fantastic way to support the Chamber.
In 2019, having been members of Sevenoaks Chamber of Commerce for some years already, we joined their Business Partner Scheme. This has enabled us to utilise the opportunities of the Chamber and engage with other Members using a variety of communication methods including hosting events and seminars.
Andrew regularly attends the monthly networking events in Sevenoaks and more recently branching out to the Swanley and Westerham events. It is another great way to extend our business connections to a wider area of West Kent.
