It's a vintage affair! Retirement development in Prestwich raises cash for Royal Voluntary Service

22 May 2017

The fine china was out this week as homeowners and staff at McCarthy and Stone’s Broadfield Court Retirement Living PLUS (previously Assisted Living) development in Prestwich welcomed local people to their vintage-inspired tea party; to raise money for older people’s charity, Royal Voluntary Service.

Guests including The Mayor of Bury, Councillor Mike Connelly took a trip back in time as they tucked into tasty treats including homemade cakes and scones and merrily danced along to Rock ‘n’ Roll, Pop, and R&B hits from the 50s and 60s.

The special event raised a fantastic £300 and helped to kick-start celebrations for McCarthy and Stone’s 40th anniversary. In 1977, the award-winning housebuilder opened its very first retirement development, paving the way for the creation of an entirely new sector of the property market.

To honour this important milestone, McCarthy and Stone is partnering with Royal Voluntary Service on a series of events in 2017, with the aim of raising over £130,000 in support of projects across the North West, and the rest of the country.

Debbie Christopher Estates Manager at Broadfield Court, who helped organise the event said: “Our vintage tea party was a great success and everyone who attended had a fantastic time. It was really rewarding to see so many new faces from the community come together, including Councillor Mike Connolly, to fundraise on behalf of Royal Voluntary Service, and I’m really proud of all our efforts!

“40 years is an incredible achievement for us, and is testament to the thousands of happy homeowners we have helped during this time. A McCarthy and Stone apartment is more than just a new home, it really is a lifestyle choice. With no maintenance worries homeowners are free to spend more time doing the things they enjoy; they can keep active by taking advantage of all the amenities close by, and take part in the various social events which make our developments such thriving communities. The vintage tea party is just one example of this, and the many ways we like to support charities and organisations within our local community.”

Comprising an attractive selection of 48 one and two bedroom Retirement Living PLUS (previously Assisted Living) apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 70 and over, Broadfield Court provides everything homeowners could want for a relaxing and enjoyable retirement.
