Because Hays Travel is an independent company, we are not tied to a particular Tour Operator, we are able to work with a wide range of suppliers to suit your every need.

How we engage with the local community

In Dorchester we are very passionate about the Charity events that we have in store and where we can help we will.

We recently organised a very successful Bingo Night in order to raise money for the Lexi May Trust.

We contacted local businesses and our tour operators to supply prizes for the raffle and bingo prizes. We got over 50 prizes ! On the night we sold raffle tickets and in advance sold tickets for the bingo.

With the match funding from the Hays Travel Foundation we donated £2,592 for this amazing charity!

We would like to thank everyone for their support and donations.
