Longmores is justifiably proud of its long association with the people of Hertford and has a history of supporting many charities in the town and further afield. These include:
The Mara Rianda Charitable Trust
Supporting the Mara Rianda School, Maasai mara, Kenya
Since September 2007 the Partners of Longmores have been sponsoring The Mara Rianda Charitable Trust to send a child to secondary school. The Trust not only pays for the school fees, which includes their accommodation and food costs, but also supplies pupils with a school uniform, equipment such as pens and pencils as well as calculators, geometry sets, study guides and the occasional school trip.
