Our Corporate Partners and Sponsors

Find out more about our current Corporate Partners and what they have to say about working with ellenor, below:


Berkeley Homes (Eastern Counties)

We have a longstanding partnership with Berkeley Homes (Eastern Counties) based in Sevenoaks. We are delighted that they have committed to working with us until 2019, and have pledged to raise an incredible £20k each year for ellenor.

Steve Gorman, Finance Director, said: "We are proud to be one of the main corporate supporters of ellenor and we encourage others to join us in supporting ellenor to enable them to continue with the valuable work and support they bring to families across Kent and Bexley. We have been actively encouraging our employees to get involved in supporting ellenor. Our staff have participated in various fundraising activities from cake and raffle tickets sales to the London Marathon, London to Paris Bike Ride and the National Three Peaks. Not only do these events raise vital funds for ellenor but they also provide a number of benefits to our company. The events provide great opportunities for team building between departments. As a company with a high number of staff based out on site, these events provide an important means to bring staff together in a social setting”.

Ward & Partners

Ward & Partners branches across Kent have been generously supporting ellenor since 2004. They kindly sponsored two of our specialist children's nurses and currently sponsor our Friday Fun Club for our youngest patients and their siblings.

David Lench, Managing Director, said: "I would wholeheartedly encourage other businesses to get involved and fundraise for ellenor. I consider myself lucky to be in a position where I have the choice to be able to challenge myself to cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats - whereas the children we are raising money for don't. This in itself is quite a spur when pedalling up hills and thinking 'what am I doing?!'"

We are incredibly grateful for Ward & Partners’ ongoing generous support.

Baxall Construction

Following a successful fundraising partnership throughout 2015, we are thrilled that Baxall Construction, based in Paddock Wood, have again chosen ellenor as their Charity of the Year for 2016/17.

The staff at Baxall are regulars at our Chilli Dip icy water plunge in Sevenoaks, and in September will be taking part in a Dragon Boat Race in Bewl Water to raise money for ellenor.

Martin Tolhurst

Solicitors with offices across Kent; in Gravesend, Ashford, Longfield, Medway, Sittingbourne and Dartford, Martin Tolhurst has chosen to support ellenor for two years, through to 2019.

“This year we will be going all out to help ellenor,” says Richard Carter, Managing Partner. “This would smash our fundraising record by a large margin and, having seen the vital work ellenor does in the community we serve, we are keen to raise this sum for them.”

Martin Tolhurst Solicitors has a variety of events planned to help it reach this record target, including partner Kevin Denny, who ran the London Marathon and Ashford conveyancer, Laura Drawbridge, is attempting to climb Kilimanjaro. “Both of these spectacular efforts by these two staff show how determined we are to support ellenor,” says Richard Carter.

Advo Group Ltd

Located in Allington, Kent, advogroup Ltd provide health insurance, staff benefits and payroll services. They will be taking part in a number of fundraising activities and volunteering, to raise money for ellenor, whilst also increasing awareness of our cause in their local area.

Lucy Irvine, Operations Manager, said:

“advo had been looking for some time to find the right charity to support and as soon as we came across ellenor, the decision was easy. To be able to support a local charity where we can see the difference being made and know that such a large percentage of our fundraising will go towards care of families that really need it, is especially fulfilling.”

Thomson Snell & Passmore

With offices in Tunbridge Wells and Thames Gateway, Thomson Snell & Passmore are a law firm delivering legal advice to families and businesses. They have chosen to support ellenor for two years from Summer 2017 and will be getting involved in fundraising, events and networking.



Web design agency, Larrytech, based in Tunbridge Wells, began supporting ellenor in 2016 with a Golf Day. Managing Director, Larry Hardcastle said, “We wanted to support a local charity that does fantastic work, and the support ellenor offer to seriously ill children and their families makes an enormous difference”.

In 2017 they are hosting another golf day at the Nevill Golf Club in Tunbridge Wells, and will also be putting on a Family Fun Day for ellenor’s families and their clients and families.


Kimberly-Clark’s Northfleet Mill has supported ellenor for many years, but in 2017 they stepped up their support and now they provide all the toilet tissue for ellenor’s sites, free of charge, saving thousands of pounds. They have also taken part in ellenor’s Accumulator Challenge and are taking on the Three Peaks this year.

Metro Mechanical

Metro Mechanical are a plumbing and drainage company with offices in Gravesend and Manchester. They gave a substantial donation to ellenor at Christmas 2016 and decided to further their support by taking part in a sponsored bike ride along the South Coast, led by Managing Director, Mark White, raising £13,000. They plan to continue their support for ellenor by taking part in a GumBall Ralley driving challenge.

We have a number of different sponsorship opportunities available throughout the year, ranging from £1000 to sponsor our Children's Christmas Party, to £15k for sole sponsorship of our annual black tie fundraiser, The Orange Ball. Each opportunity has a range of measurable benefits in return.
