Jeanne Evett (Sales and Marketing Director) with Lucy from The Child Brain Injury Trust
Dorchester Living has raised a total of £4,580 throughout 2018 and will be donating the funds between two local charities; The Child Brain Injury Trust and Homeless Oxfordshire.
Proceeds raised at an open-air cinema screening of J. K. Rowling’s ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’, as well as a Christmas market, totalled £2,290. Both events were held at Dorchester Living’s Oxfordshire development, Heyford Park. The money raised has been price matched by the developer meaning each charity will receive £2,290.
Based just four miles from Heyford Park, The Child Brain Injury Trust was established in 1991 and both researches and provides information on the effects of ‘traumatic’ injury on a child’s developing brain. They aim to create a future where all children and young people with an acquired brain injury are diagnosed promptly and receive the support they and their families need to reach their full potential and to have the best quality of life possible.
Homeless Oxfordshire is the largest emergency accommodation provider in Oxfordshire, offering shelter and a full range of support services to homeless and vulnerable people at their 56-bed hostel as well as 144 other beds located in 24 properties across the region.
Jeanne Evett, Sales and Marketing Director for Dorchester Living, said:
“We want to support local charities and organisations and are delighted to make these donations to two very worthy causes.”
“Heyford Park is a development focussed not just on building homes, but also creating a community, which is why we host events like the open-air cinema and Christmas market. Our residents and visitors are able to enjoy these events whilst knowing that their attendance is helping to support worthy causes.”
