Snap up the last apartment and raise money for local charity

25 April 2013

McCarthy & Stone supports Guide Dogs Association

The buyer who snaps up the final one bedroom apartment at McCarthy & Stone’s Strathmore Court in Forfar will trigger a one-off £500 charitable donation to ‘Guide Dogs for the Blind’ – in a move that seals the developments’ relationship with this amazing local charity.

Since construction began on the development several years ago, McCarthy & Stone has been a strong supporter of the charity – raising over £3,000. It seems fitting there will be a final donation to mark the sale of the last apartment as Suzanne McElhiney, marketing manager for McCarthy & Stone adds: "Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling.

"Visual impairment is a fact of life, and one that can have a profound effect in later years, so we’re delighted to be able to once again cement our support for this local charity so whole-heartedly with a final one-off donation of £500 when we sell the last apartment.

"The buyer of this apartment will not only enjoy the benefits of Later Living from McCarthy & Stone, they’ll also have been the catalyst for this further donation."

McCarthy & Stone is currently selling the final one bedroom Later Life apartment from £99,950 at Strathmore Court at Kirkton Park in Forfar. As well as offering a low maintenance lifestyle, purchasers can benefit from maintained landscaped gardens, a shared lounge and the peace of mind of added security.

Guide Dogs has been expertly breeding and training guide dogs for over 75 years to provide mobility and freedom to blind and partially sighted people. It also campaigns for the rights of people with visual impairment, educates the public about eye care and funds eye disease research.
