Blandford branch profile

Welcome to Hays Travel Blandford. I started working for Hays Travel 12 years ago as a Trainee and have worked my way up to Manager. My favourite destination is Australia; I spent six months travelling the East Coast and love the weather, scenery and the laid back way of life. I also visited New Zealand’s South Island, where the landscape and scenery were spectacular and so diverse.Welcome to Hays Travel Blandford where I am proud to be the Manager. I have been with the company for 14 years, I started working in Travel after studying Travel & Tourism at college. My favourite destination is Australia; I spent six months travelling the East Coast and love the weather, scenery and the laid back way of life. I have recently been to Mexico which I can highly recommend.

How we engage with the local community

Here at Hays Travel in Blandford we recently raised £270 from a Great Hays Bake-Off event, in aid of Milldown Primary School.

We wanted to get involved with our local community so we decided to give somebody the chance to win a big Summer Hamper, alongside a £25 Hays Travel voucher. We were joined by our customers who kindly bought raffle tickets and donated- after trying some of the staff’s home-made cakes. There were some very impressive cakes and we even had the local Major come and judge which one looked and tasted the best. Lesley, our Foreign Exchange Consultant, won the competition with her coffee cake covered in edible dollar bills!

We would like to thank everyone who generously donated as the money will be going towards Milldown Primary School and their Garden Project.
