Our Community Responsibility
We fully acknowledge that without the support of the local communities within which we work, we wouldn’t have a business, below are some of the projects we are currently proud to help fund and support.
Brighton & Hove Property Consortium
We were proud to be founding partners of the B&HPC.
Since our first Paris to Brighton Property Bike Ride event has become a regular annual fixture and is growing in both numbers, local significance and more importantly the amount it raises each year for the Brighton & Hove Mayors charity causes. Oakley have been proud to be joint main sponsors of the event and more importantly to take part in this great fun event.
Lewes Oyster Project
In 2017 we were pleased to make a donation to the Lewes Oyster Project to help them with their annual running costs.
What's it all about? They believe in the talents and skills of people with physical disabilities & older people and support and encourage people who want to volunteer and be involved in the community.
This project was led by our dear friend Soraya Cotwal-Ray who sadly passed away in 2017. Our thoughts and best wishes are always with her family.
We are proud to have been able to donate to Hyde Housing Associations Hyde Plus charity.
This is a community building charity and Hyde Plus has made significant strides in community investment. In the last year alone, 10,700 residents benefitted from the work of the Hyde Plus team, with financial gains to residents of £1.7 million.
Ropetackle Arts Centre
We are proud sponsors of Shoreham’s Ropetackle Arts Centre.
As joint main sponsors with Hyde Housing we are actively engaging with this great community arts facility to jointly promote Shoreham.
Brighton & Hove Estate Agents Association
Integrity is at the heart of estate agency and we are proud that we have played an active part in the support and promotion of the B&HEAA.
The Brighton & Hove Estate Agents Association was established in 1886. It endeavours to maintain and improve the already high standards of the profession.
Both Chris Oakley and James Epps are former Presidents of the Association and actively promoted professional standards and raised money for good causes during their year of office. We are proud that David Beaken, currently sits on the Council (and who knows is tipped as a future president!)
In 2018 we were main sponsors of this essentially ‘bonkers’ fun day out on the water.
The annual event attracts up to 15,000 visitors to Lewes. We have provided major investment for the event to ensure that it continues to remain a staple calendar event in the town, which both highlights good causes and ensures the town has a fun day out in the summer!
