Our Charities

Introducing Selwyn’s nominated charities for 2024.

As Richmond’s neighbourhood townhouse, community is at the centre of our ethos. To help support our local community we are delighted to announce our two nominated charities for 2024 are: 

The Otakar Kraus Music Trust (OKMT)  
Animal Rescue Centre (ARC) 

In their own unique way both charities play a vital role in our local area, and we are honoured to partner with them by donating our teams’ time, participating in fundraising and making financial contributions to allow volunteers to continue delivering the much-needed services the charities provide. 

The Otakar Kraus Music Trust (OKMT)

The Otakar Kraus Music Trust (OKMT) has been based in the London Borough of Richmond for over 30 years and is dedicated to helping some of the local community’s most vulnerable people, from toddlers with developmental delays to elderly people with dementia, through the provision of music therapy.  

Animal Rescue and Care (ARC)

Animal Rescue and Care (ARC) was set up in 2001 with the vision that every animal in our local area should be loved and cared for. It has grown from small beginnings to become a thriving charity that has helped thousands of animals.
