At Burstows we appreciate the need for local organisations to seek donations and sponsorships to assist them achieve their dreams and fundraising efforts.

It is important to understand that we wish we could give to all that ask, but as requests increase, as do demands on charities this is not viable for us as a business.

To ensure we give all donation and sponsorship requests an equal and best chance we have introduced our "gifting back" program that allows registered charities and not-for-profit organsiations to apply for our local community support.
