It’s important to us to support the communities we work in and look after the planet we all inhabit.


Each year Hillier Hopkins supports a local charity by organising fundraising activities and events. In the past we have supported Watford WorkshopHerts Young Homeless, Waverley Driving Group, a local group of the Riding for the disabled Association (RDA)Ali’s Dream and The Oli Mills Foundation and raised a total of £72,250 for these very important charities.

For 2020 we chose to support The Pepper Foundation, a charity which aims to alleviate the suffering of children diagnosed with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. We were due to hold a charity luncheon in The View at Watford Football club on Friday 15th May 2020, however due to the unforeseen situation of the pandemic we had to make the decision to cancel the event. We will continue to support The Pepper Foundation throughout 2021 and 2022 and raise money for them in other ways. Watch this space!

Ruth Proudfoot, speaking on behalf of The Pepper Foundation said:
“Our specialist nurses provide paediatric care for children living with serious illnesses in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. Care is provided free of charge in patients’ own homes and the nurses are unique to the area in that they are available 24 hours a day, all year round. Our aim is to ensure that children with complex health needs can enjoy the best quality of life possible, however short that life may be. The help we receive from organisations such as Hillier Hopkins makes a huge difference to our ability to fund much-needed care, respite, stability and most importantly hope, for families at a time when they need it most.”

Alex Bottom, Managing Principal at Hillier Hopkins:
“We are delighted to support The Pepper Foundation and are looking forward to working with them for the next year. We are hoping to raise much needed funds and awareness about their valuable work.  As anyone with a family can imagine, having a seriously ill child must be horrendous, so being able to have hospice care at home helps to reduce the strain on the whole family at this awful time.”

Environmental policy

At Hillier Hopkins we take pride in doing the right thing. Whether it’s the friendly expertise we provide to our clients or the choice of a renewable energy provider to power our office, we want to make a positive difference. That’s why as a firm we are committed to minimising our environmental footprint wherever possible across all three of our office locations. Our environmental goals are designed to help us minimise waste, procure more sustainably and build a strong environmental culture that drives us to continue to improve. Read more

Environmental actions

As a firm we are proactive in our actions to be environmentally supportive and aware. Across our three offices we have organised litter picks in the local area to do our bit to tackle this issue, and made the decision that these will be organised regularly in the future. We have also been involved in volunteering for a tree planting initiative run by Watford Chamber of Commerce in support of the Queen’s Green Canopy project for the Queen’s Silver Jubilee. Our recycling awareness and efforts have been stepped up across our offices, with more recycling bins being made available to staff. We are also looking into procuring our office supplies, stationery and branded goods more sustainably through a social enterprise supplier.
