Join us in helping Royal Voluntary Service celebrate talented older people and the heritage skills they can pass on to the younger generation.

As part of our 40th anniversary celebrations, McCarthy and Stone is supporting Royal Voluntary Service’s annual GrandFest event, which this year will take place on 18th June in London.  Together, we have launched a search for GrandMakers – individuals over 70 who would like to volunteer to teach a GrandFest masterclass, or those 60 plus who would like to take part at a GrandFest event at a McCarthy & Stone development, where they can share, learn, or brush up on their skills in crafts such as jam making, wood turning, weaving and more.

TV and radio personality, Gloria Hunniford, is also lending her support to the search for GrandMakers.  She said:  “So many people of my generation would make perfect GrandMakers.  We all have different interests, knowledge and skills which have given us great pleasure over the years.  GrandFest is a fantastic opportunity to share this expertise with younger people and to inspire the next generation to enjoy these hobbies and experiences.”
