The Don Hanson Charitable Foundation

Thank you for your interest in Don’s British charity.

The charity was established by Don Hanson in 2007 to support causes close to his heart and around geographical areas that had been a part of his life.

The Hanson Box

In 2019 the Trust proudly distributed educational ‘Hanson Boxes’ to 10,000 primary schools. These Hanson Boxes included ‘Distant Lands’, an amazing book about the UK Overseas Territories, fact sheets and a map, a DVD focusing on the wildlife, culture and heritage of all the Overseas Territories in 16 short films, Stewart McPherson’s ‘Amazing Pets and How to Keep Them’ and ‘Spectacular Plants and How to Grow Them’ books, a seed kit, and access to 28 online films.

2020 will see a doubling of the size of the Hanson Box, and it will be distributed in Autumn 2020 to 20,000 primary schools across Britain and the Overseas Territories.

In 2020, the Don Hanson Charitable Foundation contributed books to resource boxes that were donated to 4,000 schools across Australia.
