Dorchester Living has donated the proceeds from their Christmas skate rink to the Banbury Young Homelessness Project (BYHP) and Singing for Syrians charities.
Dorchester Living hosted the event at their Heyford Park development on Saturday 9 December. Overwhelming ticket sales led to a sold-out event and when combined with other donations from throughout the year, a total of £2827.41 will be split between both charities.
BYHP was founded in 2001 with the aim of supporting young people aged 13 to 25 who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or disadvantaged in Banbury, Bicester, Brackley, Chipping Norton and the surrounding areas. Core services provided by the charity include family mediation, counselling, housing and homelessness advice and employability advice.
Singing for Syrians works to raise funds and awareness for those affected by the crisis in Syria. As part of the Hands Up Foundation, this charity contributes to the millions raised so far to support young and vulnerable people affected by the conflicts occurring in Syria.
