The Lord Mayor’s Dragon Award

The Lord Mayor’s Dragon Award

 Thu, October 10, 2013

The Lord Mayor’s Dragon Award is the UK's oldest and most prestigious award and recognizes ‘best practice’ business investment into society, also to inspire greater collaboration between commerce and community.

The Dragon Award finalists are all excellent examples of productive partnerships between business and community organizations.

As demand on Castlehaven Community Association’s services began to exceed capacity we began to consider alternative project delivery models. This led to our partnership with ZenithOptimedia.

Over the last 4.5 years, 50+ events and activities have been delivered. Castlehaven has benefited from significant ZenithOptimedia staff  voluntary engagement in the delivery of front line services, unrestricted funding which has enabled us to bridge a funding crisis, advertising space and back office support. Furthermore, ZenithOptimedia’s CEO is working with Castlehaven’s CEO in developing their business planning.

Castlehaven’s dedication to close communication, joint planning sessions and openness to try out new ideas has led this partnership to be advertised as a best practice example by Camden Council.
