The Local Community
Dorchester Living are always keen to get involved with local community projects and to show support to the community through sponsorship and donations.
In summer 2013, Dorchester Living hosted a 10km Fun Run on the airfield, with all proceeds being donated to the Air Ambulance.
In summer 2014, Dorchester contributed funds towards a bench for the Heyford Park Community Garden. Over the 2014 Christmas period, Dorchester donated a hamper to the Heyford Park Christmas Bazaar, as well as providing the design and printing of the leaflets for the event.
As of 2014, Dorchester Living are proud sponsors of Ardley United FC. Dorchester also frequently sponsor local events such as the Ardley & Fewcott Flower Show and Upper Heyford Autumn Show.
In December 2014, Dorchester Living ran a Christmas Present Appeal for the children’s ward at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. Dorchester encouraged their suppliers and the local community to donate presents by leaving them under the Christmas tree in the Dorchester Living Sales and Marketing Suite.
The presents were collected for children aged 14 and under, and on 16th December 2014 Dorchester Living employees went to the hospital to deliver the presents in time for Christmas.
The staff and nurses were thrilled with the variation and number of donations. The gifts were distributed to the children on the ward, as well as to their siblings, to help make Christmas as festive as possible for the children and their families.
