Supporting Local Charities and Community Interest Corporations (C.I.C’s)

Mockford & Hunt are a small local business and it is important to us that we contribute to our community. We live locally with our families, our children attend local schools and we value everything that Ashford has to offer.

We sponsor a small selection of chosen charities/ community interest companies that we feel represent different aspects of the community and would benefit from working with us. We hope that you agree that by giving something back, we really do care. For us, it's always been more than a job.

By giving our sellers the opportunity to choose which preferred charity or C.I.C that we donate to, it ensures that the contribution will benefit a cause close to your heart and it hopefully reinforces that our service is all about you.

Mockford & Hunt Community Initiatives

We like to be hands on where we can having initiated and led local Ashford community projects as we enjoy being involved within the community itself with the aim to making a difference. 

Since we opened in 2020, we have arranged two charity music festivals and participated in the Amsterdam Marathon. In 2022, we set up and host our now ongoing monthly Community Clean Up. In June 2023, we collaborated with Repton Connect Community Centre / People’s Pantry and residents from the Holiday Inn to grow a kitchen garden, of which fresh fruit and vegetables will be made available to support local families in the area.

What we did for our community in 2022

Over the year, we donated £3037.66 between 6 local charities, all nominated by our sellers. In addition, we fundraised £816 for 'Take Off' mental health charity and Ukrainian Aid. We also supported Lady Joanna Thornhill Primary school in their advertising of events and Tim even starred as Father Christmas for their festive fair. Thank you to all our sellers for their nominations and to our local community that supported us to raise funds.
