Dorchester Living, the developer currently transforming Heyford Park near Bicester, has donated £5,530 to The Child Brain Injury Trust, following a range of community fundraising events. The donation marks the second year that Dorchester Living has supported the charity, which is based less than five miles from Heyford Park.
The Child Brain Injury Trust charity was founded in 1991 and was set up to research and provide information regarding the effects of traumatic injury on a child’s developing brain.
The aim of the charity is to provide individualised support to enable children and their families to move forward following a brain injury. As the charity does not receive government support, donations are its main source of funding.
Dorchester Living raised the £5,530 through several community events in 2019, including an Open-Air Cinema. Dorchester Living then matched the amount raised, helping to double the event total.
Jeanne Evett, Sales and Marketing Director at Dorchester Living, said: “Helping to support the local community is at the heart of Heyford Park. We pride ourselves on our local commitments and have been very happy to support The Child Brain Trust for a second year running, and hope the money raised will provide much-needed funding to the charity.”
Gayle Baird at Child Brain Injury Trust, said “We are delighted with this very generous donation from Dorchester Living. The support of local businesses like this is vital to our work and means that we can help more families whose lives have been impacted by acquired brain injury.”
