Denbury Charitable

As a local housebuilder I understand just how special our communities are. Many of the causes and charities are familiar to me on a personal level so I’m delighted to be able to support their work through our charitable fund.

James Hopkins

Founded by James and Selina Hopkins and family, the Denbury Charitable Fund (formerly known as the Hopkins Charitable Fund), supports local charities that work with some of the most vulnerable people in our area.


James Hopkins’ company, Denbury Homes, is a regional housebuilder, proud of its East Anglian roots and committed to supporting the communities its homes are a part of. Having worked with Suffolk Community Foundation for many years, the Hopkins family formalised and expanded the charitable fund in 2017. Since then, in Suffolk alone, the fund has given out awards and grants of over £1 million. This includes as major donations to charities such as Rural Coffee Caravan, Access Community Trust and Porch Project, the creation of a winter crisis fund to help those struggling to pay energy bills, and as small grants to charities and groups working to support young people, adults, and the elderly.

These are some groups that have been funded by The Denbury Charitable Fund’s grants panel:

  • Ipswich Community Media
  • Cambridgeshire Community Foundation
  • Suffolk Rape Crisis
  • Friends of Thomas Wolsey School
  • Home-Start in Suffolk
  • REACH Community Projects
  • Iceni Ipswich
  • New Life Church (Suffolk)
  • Rural Coffee Caravan Information Project
  • Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds
  • Young People Taking Action
  • Bury St Edmunds and West Suffolk Samaritans
