Having supported numerous national charities over the years Jeremy and Stephen decided to launch the Stonegate Foundation in 2017 so that they could start working on a closer level with more locally based charities, schools, and community groups.
Previously, Stonegate Homes have helped re-house people on the Mole Valley District Council homeless list; provided Christmas fayre to the Dorking Christian Centre for those otherwise on their own on Christmas Day, funded an entertainer for the Christmas party at the Fairfield Centre;supported the Friends of Dorking Christmas Lights Appeal and been heavily involved in the Deepdene Trail as landowners of the Deepdene Gardens and supporters of the Deepdene Trail’s Winter Wonders weekend.
As part of their sponsorship of the SuperHero series they have also taken double Rio gold medallist Georgie Hermitage to numerous local schools including Aschcombe, and West Hill to inspire the kids there. On top of this they have sponsored numerous local sports clubs and athletes in need of funding.
By now formalising this generosity through the Stonegate Foundation, the directors wish to align their efforts and fundraise alongside their own donations through their extensive Business and Personal networks. Their aim is to enhance the lives of everyone in the local communities in which they operate, from the young to the old, those with a physical handicap, mental illness, injury or life limiting illness. The Foundation will primarily support local community groups, charities, schools and organisations operating in Mole Valley and the wider Surrey area howeverfrom time to time may support both National and International causes.
