The Steve Bernard Foundation is a charity close to the heart of Steve Hendy, deputy managing director of the Hendy Group. Steve has been a long time friend of the family – a link forged on the local football pitch with the children playing and proud parents watching.
The Hendy Group, which employs more than 900 people throughout the south and south west, is an integral part of any community in which it operates and a great supporter of industry, sporting and local charities. As a leading player in the south’s business community Steve is well placed to be a patron of the Steve Bernard Foundation and plays an active role not only in spreading news of the good works of the charity but also taking part in event such as the famous Rome 2 Home bike ride in 2015.
The Group’s support also sees a sponsorship programme which includes the Wessex Swim School to get more children swimming, Hampshire Cricket, and British bobsleigh Olympic hopefuls. In addition to his high profile business career, Steve is major name in the world of motorsport. He has twice been crowned National Asphalt Rally Champion in the UK, won numerous class awards and now rallies his Hendy Group Focus WRC both in the UK and throughout Europe.
