We exist to to help children with hydrocephalus


At Stanton House we are aware of our responsibilities to our local communities and of the importance to give a little back where we can. Our Corporate Social Responsibility Committee organise a well-supported programme of fund raising and voluntary activity and are proactive in generating enthusiastic participation. We first embarked on our CSR journey in 2012 when we decided to offer a series of consultancy sessions to University students in London. Since then, we have gone on to climb mountains, cross rivers and tackle long distance walks to raise over £31,000 for EducAid.

Since July 2021 we have been supporting an amazing charity called Harry's Hat who focus solely on Hydrocephalus (water on the brain) and its impact. Every year 1 in every 1000 babies are born with the condition and many more children acquire it. Their overall aim is to make life better for children with Hydrocephalus, as well as for those who love and care for them.  We have raised £11,493 to date, and hope to raise even more this year.

Here is an overview of what we have done in recent years:

•Conquered Yorkshire’s famous three-peaks raising £5,686 for EducAid and transforming the lives of 22 young Sierra Leoneans

•Our Hong Kong team faced mud, fire, walls and barbed wire as they tackled the Spartan Sprint for EducAid, raising HK$ 39,041.06 and providing a place of safety to 14 children in Sierra Leone

•Trekked the equivalent of 2.5 Marathons as we walked from London to Brighton for EducAid. The team raised enough money to teach, feed and home 31 vulnerable children in Sierra Leone

•Spent four hours hiking the Lake Districts’ Ullswater in torrential rain, heavy fog and 50mph winds raising more than £4,450 for EducAid in the process!•10 brave employees jumped out of a plane (with a parachute!!), free falling for 30 seconds and in the process raised a fantastic £5,000.

Last year we took on the Thames Path Challenge, which was a 100km walk along the River Thames from Putney to Henley, split over two days.  This year we have decided to challenge ourselves again with the South-Coast Challenge, another 100km walk from Eastbourne to Arundel.
