Enjoy a cream tea with McCarthy & Stone in Ipswich

06 May 2014

McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading developer of retirement apartments, is inviting locals in Ipswich to its Booth Court development for an afternoon of cream tea to help raise money for the Royal Voluntary Service.

The developer announced the RVS as their ‘Charity of the Year’ in September 2013 and homeowners and staff have been holding events to help its fundraising activity. The cream tea event will be held at the development, on Handford Road, on the 10th May between 3pm and 5pm and will give visitors the chance to come and take a look around while enjoying a relaxing afternoon.

Gill Sabin, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy & Stone, comments: “We’re delighted that we can invite locals to attend our cream tea, occasions such as these will only strengthen the great sense of community here and that is something we really want our visitors to feel when they come to see the apartments on offer.

“The staff and homeowners at Booth Court have been really supportive of the RVS and they even held a recruitment drive in the homeowners lounge in January to help people in Ipswich learn more about how they could become a volunteer themselves.” 

The charity’s volunteers have an average age of 64 and the retirement developer has a real affinity with the RVS as many of their homeowners are actively engaged in volunteering.

McCarthy & Stone is currently selling one and two bedroom Assisted Living apartments exclusively for the over 70s at Booth Court.

In addition to stylish, low maintenance properties, Booth Court benefits from communal facilities, including a table service restaurant and communal lounge, plus personal care, domestic assistance and other support services all in a safe and secure environment that offers peace of mind and continued independence in a property they continue to own.

Staff will be on site 24 hours a day and can be called in an instant courtesy of the 24 hour emergency call system.  Importantly for both homeowners and their family, Assisted Living offers the reassurance and peace of mind that their loved ones are in good hands. All properties are low maintenance and energy efficient and prices start from £139,950.
