The Richardson Brothers Foundation

In 2006 the family established The Richardson Brothers Foundation to give financial support to a wide range of charities and individuals. 

As well as supporting national causes like Breakthrough Breast Cancer, the RNLI and Beating Bowel Cancer, the Foundation also donates to different local and regional good causes.


Recent organisations to benefit from the Foundation include Acorns Children’s Hospice, Priory Boxing Club, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Woodland House Appeal, Midlands Air Ambulance and Dudley Canal Trust.

The Richardson family are passionate, long-term supporters of the UK’s Armed Forces and take pride in the fact that seven family members have served their country in recent years.  Through the Foundation they have given financial contributions to a range of military fundraising appeals including BLESMSA, the Army Benevolent Fund and Help for Heroes, as well as countless cadet units across the West Midlands region.

During the Coronavirus pandemic the Foundation has been committed to ensuring local communities get the help they need.  Donations have been awarded to local food banks, schools and community organisations, in an effort to support the most vulnerable throughout the most challenging times.

To receive a donation from the Richardson Foundation is amazing.  It means we can stock up on essential items, like milk, sugar, washing powder and toiletries.  Things people ordinarily take for granted but that can be in short supply when the going gets tough.”
