Mayfair Town & Country's Dorchester (Poundbury) office have announced a new relationship with Dorset County Hospital, which will see them donate a portion of their fees to the hospital Charity’s Cancer Appeal.
The team will be donating £250 for every house sale that completes through their Poundbury office from June until the end of 2017.
Mayfair’s staff will be raising money throughout the year with a programme of ongoing activities, ranging from sponsored walks and afternoon teas, having held the first of these successfully at the end of May. All of these are designed to spread the message of the Cancer Appeal campaign. It is hoped the overall partnership will assist the Appeal in getting closer to their fundraising target of £1.75 million.
The Cancer Appeal will provide a cancer outpatients department on top of the new Radiotherapy bunker currently under construction at the Hospital, and fund major improvements on the existing Chemotherapy Unit. Creating these spaces will transform the experience of cancer patients at the hospital, as well as providing better access to radiotherapy services for patients from North, West and South Dorset.
Laura Bredenkamp, Branch Manager at Mayfair Poundbury, said: ”Having all aspects of cancer treatment care under one roof with outpatients and support facilities available for all affected, will be a fabulous addition to Dorset County Hospital. I know people who have had to travel to Poole for cancer treatment and the journey only added to a very stressful and difficult time in their lives. I am delighted to be supporting this amazing addition to Dorchester’s community”.
Simon Pearson, Head of Fundraising at Dorset County Hospital Charity, said: “We hope this will be the start of a very positive relationship with Mayfair Town and Country. We are working hard to build strong connections with local businesses and the partnership with the Mayfair team will also help us to reach out to the wider community.”
