We like to support charities that make a difference to our environment, so once again we are proud to sponsor the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust’s 2016 calendar.
The Hildon Foundation was created in the early 1990’s and funded directly by Hildon Limited. Established initially to encourage and support young musicians, an area close to our Founder’s heart, it widened its scope in 2008 to include local good causes, of which we have supported many.
An exciting dance competition for local primary school pupils in the Test Valley School cluster group. Started in 2012 to coincide with the Olympics, this event is designed to promote confidence, team work and agility in the young.
Regular donations to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Community Fund, an independent charitable foundation that connects donors to local causes and charities. Amalgamating donations allows greater giving power, making our money go further.
By contributing to the arts we support those with talent, helping them to showcase their skills and creativity. From sponsoring young musicians in residence at Aldeburgh to realise their dreams, to organisations such as the Royal College of Music, the James Hay Royal Ballet School, the British National Ballet School and the Royal Opera House Foundation.

In conjunction with our local authorities, tree planting in Winchester and Romsey towns to enhance city living. Annual sponsorship of the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, with additional support for their exciting calendar and “Wildlife Watch” scheme which will create our wildlife ambassadors of the future.
Since the Hildon Foundation was established we have donated over £210,000 to home-grown charitable causes which we hope has made a real difference to people, their lives and the environment they live in.
