Oak View in the Community

Whilst being a profitable, successful business is of paramount importance to the Company as it strives to meet its business goals and targets, Oak View has a strong belief and commitment in giving support, help, donation and sponsorship to other organisations within the community.

Recent benefactors have included Essex Wildlife Trust, West Bergholt Cricket Club, Heathlands School, Bures United Youth Football Club, Greenfingers, East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices and Colchester United Supporters Association Football Club.

A team of intrepid landscapers and nurserymen, including Oak View’s Managing Director Paul Downer, completed the challenge of their lifetimes, raising funds for horticulture trade charity Perennial. The 3 Peaks Extreme Challenge team endured six grueling days climbing mountains and cycling 450 miles, finishing their epic journey on 11 September. They have so far raised over £16,000 to help Perennial support people in the horticulture industry during their times of need and this total is still growing.

The team hiked to the top of Ben Nevis (1344m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1085m) as well as cycling the 445 miles in between.
