At Eaton Manor we support a number of charities, both local and further afield, as well as Macmillan which is our charity of the year.
The charities we support are:
The International Egg Foundation (IEF)
As a business we have strongly supported this charity and are a founding member. The IEF is an independent charitable foundation that has been established to improve nutrition, health and education in developing countries, by increasing egg production and consumption.
Motor Neurone Disease Association
We made a significant donation to Row the Amazon 2015, a remarkable challenge taken on by five amateur rowers from Shropshire, one of whom is a friend and business colleague, to row the navigable length of the Amazon River, from Nauta in Peru to Macapá in Brazil – a total distance of 2077 miles – totally unsupported and completely self-funded.
In 2015 we also pledged a mid-week break at Eaton Manor for a charity auction to raise funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association in memory of Clive Frampton, a friend and colleague.
We have worked with Edward’s Trust for a number of years and offer our properties at a much reduced rate for short breaks for bereavement counselling.
Church Stretton Cancer Care Group
Stretton Cancer Care provides care for the people in the local area affected by Cancer. Each December we provide a complimentary venue for their Christmas Lunch in recognition of the work they do.
Shropshire Young Carers Group
We have been delighted to host the young carers of Shropshire for the day and give them time to just have fun and be kids.
Meals on Wheels of Wake County, North Carolina, USA
We also support a charity based a little further afield, in North Carolina in the USA, which is close to the heart of a good friend. In 2014 and 2015 we pledged a mid-week break at Eaton Manor for a charity auction to raise funds for the Meals on Wheels of Wake County charity to support the elderly in their community.
