Local charities in Blairgowrie rally to McCarthy and Stone’s appeal

05 May 2016

Blairgowrie

Award-winning retirement housebuilder, McCarthy and Stone, has been contacted by a number of local charities who have answered its appeal for support in and around Blairgowrie, as its new Darroch Gate development takes shape on Coupar Angus Road.

With community right at the heart of McCarthy and Stone, and requests for help arriving regularly since the story appeared in the Blairgowrie Advertiser, the company has asked that any local causes still considering an application should do so my Friday 20 May, 2016.  This will allow the team to review the applications that have been received and award their donations.  While McCarthy and Stone cannot guarantee funding in every case, it has vowed to help as many organisations in the Blairgowrie area as possible.

The deadline for community groups and local charities to get in touch is Friday 20th May and they should email requests to mccarthyandstone@mccann.com.

Please mark your emails ‘Blairgowrie Community Appeal’ in the subject header.

Rosemary Giovino, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy and Stone in Scotland, said: “We’re delighted to have received applications from a diverse range of local community groups and charities in and around Blairgowrie.  And it’s been fascinating to learn a little bit more about what’s happening locally in the area and where we might be able to make a difference.

“As our development in Blairgowrie takes shape and becomes part of the local landscape, it is part of our ongoing commitment to help build a positive legacy in the local community. Our closing date for applications is Friday 20 May, 2016 and thereafter we will publicise the donations of support that we’ve made.”

Currently under construction and already for sale, Darroch Gate, is an attractive development of 36 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments.  Prices and plans for the development are anticipated to be launched in late 2016, and the first homeowners will be welcomed in spring 2017.
