Charity Policy

Garsons is a family-run business and we're proud to be part of the local community. We actively support the community surrounding both our Surrey and Hampshire stores.
We endeavour to help schools, charities, clubs and other organisations through sponsorship, donations, events and education.

Our Charity of the Year

Garsons at Esher and Garsons at Titchfield elect or re-elect a local charity to support annually. There are charity boxes at the tills for voluntary donations, we hold fundraising events throughout the year, including collections during our events, and our own staff go the extra mile with sponsored activities. Thanks to their efforts, and the generosity of our wonderful customers, we have managed to raise thousands of pounds every year for worthwhile local causes.   

Charities for 2020:

Garsons Esher: We have chosen to support Peterson's Fund For Children; a registered local charity that supports children in Surrey and surrounding areas who struggle with severe mental & physical disabilities. It has been in existence for just over 9 years and through extensive fundraising efforts has provided funding for a variety of therapy, specialised equipment and much needed respite care otherwise unavailable on the NHS.

Garsons Titchfield: We have chosen to support Abby's Heroes. The aim of this charity is to help and support children and their families, including bereaved families, who come under the care of the Piam Brown and the Teenagers and Young Adults (TYA) wards at Southampton General Hospital. Abby's Heroes offer financial and practical help as well as the opportunity to make lasting memories for the children and their families.

In addition, three national charities have floral buttonhole appeals at till points throughout the year. 

Donations

We are pleased to make donations in the form of gift vouchers, where possible, to local causes and fundraising events. Applications for consideration should be made by email at least six weeks before your event, outlining your cause. info@garsons.co.uk

Community

Growing with Schools is Garsons’ gardening campaign, designed to inspire a love of gardening in children. This is achieved through both sponsorship and advice from our team, given to local schools and playgroups. If you're a local school and would like to be a part of our Growing with Schools campaign please contact us via email to be considered info@garsons.co.uk
