McCarthy & Stone honour the armed forces in aid of charity

25 November 2013

Homeowners and staff at McCarthy & Stone’s Cartwright Court came together to honour the armed forces in an Armistice Day event and helped to raise money for the developer’s charity of the year the Royal Voluntary Society.

A service was held at the development, off Albert Road North in Malvern, which followed the national two minute silence. Guests were also treated to a performance from the Boys Brigade and a war time singer. Lunch and entertainment was also provided and fundraising took place to help raise over £50 for the RVS.

Gill Sabin, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy & Stone, commented: “We are very pleased that the event was a great success and everyone at the development really helped to make the day that means so much to many people, extra special. We’re delighted that we could also raise money for our chosen charity, the RVS, as we have pledged to raise at least £75,000 over the course of the year

“The day was a great opportunity to not only help towards this but for our staff and homeowners to commemorate Armistice Day and after the great success of the event everyone wants to do it all again next year.”
