McCarthy and Stone Shows Its Support for Upper Norwood Library Trust

10th October 2019

McCarthy and Stone, the housebuilder behind the Lewis House Retirement Living development on Beulah Hill in Upper Norwood, has given Upper Norwood Library Hub (UNLH) a welcome boost with them becoming a valued member of the Corporate Supporters’ Scheme with a £250 donation. 

Based in Upper Norwood, the main focus of the Library Hub is to sustain library provision in the community whilst offering a range of learning, social, wellbeing and cultural activities for local residents.

Chris Neath, Library Hub Manager of the Upper Norwood Library Hub comments: “We are delighted to receive this kind donation and gesture of support from McCarthy and Stone. It is our aim to keep the Library Hub running for as long as possible, donations from supporters like yourselves help us to create a sustainable and vibrant library hub for everyone with help of Lambeth and Croydon councils. Individuals and organisations can also show us continued support by becoming Library Supporters themselves online, at uppernorwoodlibraryhub.org/supporters-scheme/ or by donating regularly via localgiving.org/upper-norwood-library-trust.” 

Julie Ward, National Sales Director for McCarthy and Stone, said: “As a company we appreciate that our responsibilities go further than developing quality retirement properties - we also seek to create a positive legacy and make a difference in the communities in which we build. 

“When we were looking for a charity in the Upper Norwood area to support, the Library Hub stood out for the wide range of local services it delivers to the community. As a developer which strives to enrich the lives of retirees through the opportunity to enjoy an independent retirement surrounded by like-minded individuals, it was our absolute pleasure to present this donation to such a deserving local cause.”

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living developments offer retirees the opportunity to maintain an independent lifestyle, while having access to tailored domestic and personal assistance packages to help them manage their day-to-day lives.

Comprising a selection of 26 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 60 and over, Lewis House provides everything homeowners could want for a relaxing retirement.  

The shared lounge is perfect for socialising with new neighbours, the landscaped gardens are ideal for making the most of the outdoors and the roof terrace offers stunning views over the London skyline. Homeowners can feel secure in the knowledge that the House Manager is on hand to provide any help or support should they need it; and that friends and family can stay over whenever they choose in the development’s hotel-style guest suite.  Security entrance systems and 24-hour emergency call points provide added peace-of-mind for homeowners and their families.

Ideally located in the heart of Upper Norwood, Lewis House is within easy reach of all the town’s amenities, including supermarkets and shops.  Homeowners also benefit from excellent public transport links to the heart of London, which is just seven miles away.

More than nine out of ten customers would recommend McCarthy and Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 14 years’ running.  McCarthy and Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade, which is every year the awards have been run.
