The Quicksilver Hampton Court Half 2020 will be directly raising money for associated charities, although many runners also fundraise personally for charities of their choice.

Headline charities

The Royal Star & Garter Homes provides award-winning care for veterans and their partners who live with disability or dementia, in state-of-the-art Homes in Surbiton, Solihull and High Wycombe. The Charity was founded in 1916 to care for the severely injured young men returning from the battlegrounds of the First World War. Today, we provide specialist nursing, dementia and therapeutic care, together with a varied and engaging programme of activities, which enable residents to remain independent and enjoy life.
