THE owners at Churchill Retirement Living have their woolly jumpers and hot cups of coffee at the ready for a series of "Warming Morning" fundraising events in aid of Age UK’s Bobble Day, the Charity’s winter fundraiser.
Charitable Owners and those interested in Churchill Retirement Living developments, such as the one planned for The site where Thornbury police station once stood, are being encouraged to wrap up warm and attend a coffee morning at a local development in South Gloucestershire to raise vital funds that will help Age UK make winter a better season for older people.
‘Warming Mornings’ will take place at 11am on Tuesday, February 11 in the Owners’ Lounge at Concorde Lodge in Filton. Luxury hot chocolate, liqueur coffees, speciality teas and delicious cakes will be on offer for guests to enjoy.
Spencer McCarthy, chairman and group managing director at Churchill Retirement Living, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Age UK’s Bobble Day fundraiser and encouraging as many people as possible to get involved. At Churchill we believe strongly that the older generation should live in an environment where they feel safe without the worry of keeping warm or being isolated.”
Laurie Boult, head of fundraising at Age UK said: “We are delighted that Churchill Retirement Living’s Concorde Lodge is supporting Age UK’s Bobble Day to help us raise vital funds for our Spread the Warmth campaign this winter. Whether you buy and wear a bobble badge or get sponsored to do something incredible – you will be raising money to help keep older people warm and well this winter.”
