The donation provided us with the sound engineer to host the Christmas Concert to raise all important funds for our cause.  We rely solely on the generosity of local people and businesses, so securing this donation from McCarthy Stone gives us a real boost and helps us continue our work for the people of Amersham.”

Jo Bannon, McCarthy Stone’s Estates Manager at Chiltern Place added: “As a company, we appreciate our responsibilities go further than building quality retirement apartments, and we also seek to create a positive legacy in the towns and cities in which we build.  

“We were delighted to present this donation to the RNLI Chilterns Branch. We understand how vital it is to support the wider community and the team at McCarthy Stone’s Chiltern Place development wishes everyone involved with the RNLI Chilterns Branch every success in their future work.”
