Here at Hangar 4 we believe that the business should put something back into the community as a thanks for all the support from the customers.

To that end, this page will show you what we have done so far.


Every year since 2013 we have committed to providing charity t shirts. These t shirts are made for us, and paid for by us. We cover the costs of all the t shirts and the printing, then ask for just £3.00 minimum donation.

Every year, 100% of donations get shared between certain charities which change each year.

This year we are pleased to say that all the money from the t shirts sold will be shared between:

– Beckside Mental Health Project

– Ashbourne Parkinson Support Group

This is a fundraiser which we thrive to do, as we know how much of a difference it makes to local charities.


Our charity 2017 T shirts raised £400 which will be split equally between both charities. We have contacted both, who were overwhelmed with the donation. This couldn’t happen without the continued support of our loyal customer.

Hangar 4 are always looking at sponsoring local sports teams within Ashbourne. We are delighted to announce that we have sponsored ‘Ashbourne Old Boys’ in the local summer league. Our sky blue kit makes them distinguished from the rest, well its either that or the lack of hair!! They are ‘the best team in summer league, 20 years too late’. Its great to watch as regardless of the score, they are always in high spirits.

Rich took part in a sponsored zip wire in North Wales. It was a mile long zip wire which he thoroughly enjoyed, even though we think it aged him by a couple of decades!

From the event, he raised a magnificent £1200 which he thoughtfully split between 3 charities. These being:

– Ashbourne Royal Shrovetide

– Derbyshire Care Line

– Ashbourne Fun Day

Rich is at present looking at what he can do next, to give something back into the community once again.

Hangar 4 has committed to a standing order for £5 a week in the Air Ambulance lottery. This helps the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance. Hangar 4 would hope that other businesses in the local area would consider doing the same.

Winter 2014

Hangar 4 has continued its support of Ashbourne Royal Shrovetide football.  In Winter 2014 we held a raffle for an England football shirt. Thanks to the generosity of all our customers and with a  little top up from us, we were very pleased to raise £100.
