The residents of Surrey were greeted by a very colourful and wonderful sight over the summer as the Surrey Cow Parade arrived in the county. Dozens of brightly-coloured cows have been decorating the hills, farms, towns, schools and popular landmarks with the aim of sharing the beauty of the Surrey Hills and to provide a massive boost to local businesses and community projects.
Hart Brown supported this initiative by sponsoring a cow which took part in the parade and worked with award winning artist Tiffany Budd to create Leafy Moo. Revealed at our annual event, the Hart Brown Annual Economic Forum, Leafy Moo took residence at the bottom of Guildford High Street by Debenhams and was the most visited cow on the Surrey Cow Parade app!
The cows will be auctioned off in October with the money raised being split between the Surrey Hills Trust Fund and a charity of the sponsors choice, ours being Cherry Trees.
We chose Cherry Trees by asking our staff to nominate and vote for a cause they would like to support. There were many worthy charities nominated but Cherry Trees, nominated by secretary Pru Hewett from our Cranleigh office, was the popular choice. Pru is an active supporter of the charity and can be found fundraising for them in her spare time. Cherry Trees is where home from home short break/respite care is provided for children and young people aged 0-19 with a range of disabilities including learning, physical and sensory impairments.
