Hi-Speed Charity Partnerships 2021

Giving back to the community

At Hi-Speed, we understand the importance of giving back to our local community. We will continue to support local events taking place in 2021 and look forward to sharing further details over the course of the year.


It is a particularly challenging time for smaller, local charities and we want to do more to help over the coming months. So, if you are involved in a charity that operates within a ten-mile catchment area of our branches in Ash Vale and Rugby, then you could apply for one of our monthly grants of one-hundred pounds.

All you need to do is to complete the grant request form on this page, telling us who your charity is and how you would spend the grant.

    Rugby Foodbank

    The staff at our Rugby branch have chosen Rugby Foodbank to support with this month`s charity donation and will be providing supermarket vouchers which we will be dropping to their distribution depot in Newbold Road. The Hi-Speed team are keen to help such a deserving organisation and will be looking at ways we can continue to help our local foodbank over the coming months. The foodbank is part of The Trussell Trust network of 428 foodbanks, working to tackle food poverty and hunger in our local communities, as well as across the UK. The Foodbank Network was founded in 2004 and has helped communities work together to launch foodbanks nationwide in a wide range of towns and cities. In 2020/21, The Trussell Trust’s Foodbank Network provided 2,537,198 three-day emergency food supplies and support to UK people in crisis. Of these, 980,082 went to children. The Trussell Trust and local foodbanks are working together to develop new ways to help people out of crisis. To find out more about The Trussell Trust visit www.trusselltrust.org.

  • Harry's Hat

    Harry's Hat

    Harry’s Hydrocephalus Awareness Trust (Harry’s HAT) was founded in 2018, by Harry’s family and friends in response to the need they identified following Harry’s diagnosis with Hydrocephalus (water on the brain). We became a registered charity in 2019. Harry was diagnosed with an arachnoid cyst when his Mother, Caroline, was 36-weeks pregnant. Soon after Harry was born, it was confirmed that the cyst had caused Hydrocephalus and that Harry would need a permanent shunt to survive. The shunt, which drains the fluid from Harry’s brain, was inserted when he was just eight weeks old. By the time Harry had reached his first birthday, he had already endured four brain surgeries. He spent lots of time in hospital and had frequent blue light trips into A&E. His family found themselves isolated by Harry’s condition and struggled to access the support and information they needed. In addition, Harry’s family realised that, despite the fact that Hydrocephalus is the most common reason for brain surgery in children and affects 1 in every 1000 babies born in the UK today, relatively little is known about the condition. Additionally, there is little investment into the management of condition on a national scale. In fact the shunt, which keeps Harry alive, was invented by Roald Dahl in 1962 after his own child was injured in a serious accident. The technology surrounding this hasn’t really moved on since then. 50% of shunts block within the first two years, requiring further brain surgery and this was certainly the case for Harry. In response, the family founded Harry’s HAT. We are the only UK charity to focus solely on Hydrocephalus and its impact. Our overall aim is to make life better for children with Hydrocephalus, as well as for those who love and care for them; and, ultimately find a cure. The aim of the charity is three-fold – Awareness, Research, Support: • Raising awareness of paediatric Hydrocephalus • Funding research and training for nurses and front-line workers to improve the outcome for children with the condition • Signposting families affected by Hydrocephalus in children
