At Bennie we believe it is important to think beyond the work place by supporting our local communities and good causes. Our employees are always doing something caring or energetic to raise money for charity.
Matt Hampson Foundation
The Bennie Group developed a task force consisting of Barton Plant, Barton Civils and Peter Bennie to help the Matt Hampson Foundation develop a Get Busy Living Centre. The Centre now helps the rehabilitation of sports professionals that receive life changing injuries and is the dream of Matt Hampson.
The Bennie Group has been involved with Ride High for many years. Emma (Bennie Group MD) was appointed a Chair of the Trustees for the charity between 2012 and 2013 and continues to work closely with the organisation.
The excellent team at Ride High have helped over 1000 children to date, supporting an average of 80 children per week!
About Ride High
The charity helps disadvantaged children and those having difficulties in their daily lives, by giving them the opportunity to learn to ride and look after horses and ponies. There is evidence that for children who are angry, hurt, upset, lonely or underprivileged, contact with horses can have highly beneficial effects.
Ride High is a registered charity (no. 1138260).
