LCF makes £25,000 in donations

Five local charities share the £25,000 donation

Lodders Charitable Foundation

The Lodders Charitable Foundation (LCF) has made its latest round of donations, dividing £25,000 equally between five local charities.

LCF has donated £5,000 to each of Stratford’s Orchestra of the Swan, Stratford Food Bank, Birmingham-based NetworkFour, and Cheltenham Open Door.

It has also made a special £5,000 donation via St Johns Church Henley in Arden to a Ukrainian based Charity Palianytsia based in Lviv in the west of Ukraine, which provides humanitarian aid such as medicines, first aid kits and food for people affected by the war.

LCF raised the £25,000 at its busy programme of fundraising events during 2022 – including a Family Fun Day and dog walk in Henley in Arden, and a Comedy Night organised with help from local company Comedy at Work – and from donations from Lodders’ partners.

“The LCF is very proud to be able to support these charities, all of which provide support for local communities and rely on donations for their existence,” says David Lodder, chairman, Lodders Charitable Foundation.

“When LCF was created in 2016, its main aim was to raise vital financial support and provide help to independent charities local to each of Lodders’ offices, where the money can make a genuine, real difference. Six years on, this remains LCF’s mission, but this year, in view of the desperate needs of the people affected by the Ukrainian war, LCF has also provided financial support to Ukraine including those living in many of the danger zones in the East of the country.”


Stratford Food Bank, The Trussell Trust aims to prevent or relieve poverty in Stratford upon Avon and the surrounding areas by providing emergency food supplies to those in need, or organisations preventing poverty.

Orchestra of the Swan (OOTS) is an English professional chamber orchestra based in Stratford upon Avon. It is Resident Orchestra at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. The monies provided by the LCF have been used specifically towards the program of work it runs to bring music into the support of dementia and the bringing of music into care homes, schools, and rural areas around the West Midlands.

Network Four has supported and engaged with over 6,500 young people, adults, and families in crisis since it began in 2008.

Cheltenham Open Door provides support to Cheltenham’s most vulnerable, disadvantaged, and lonely people.

£70,000 raised and donated

To date, LCF has raised and donated more than £70,000 to independent charities. It will continue to fundraise through a programme of events in 2023, and its named beneficiaries for next year are: NetworkFour, Stratford Food Bank, and Homestart, which works with families with children under the age of five who are facing challenging times.
