Trelawny House in Falmouth raises a cuppa for the RNLI

31 May 2017

Homeowners and staff at McCarthy and Stone’s Trelawny House development in Falmouth invited local people to join them for afternoon tea to raise funds for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). 

Members of the public helped raise over £230 from a number of fundraising activities at the event which took place at the Retirement Living development on Bar Road.  In return for a donation, all guests were able to enjoy afternoon tea and a raffle prize draw in the homeowners’ lounge, and there was also a presentation from a representative of Falmouth RNLI. 

The RNLI is a national charity which saves lives at sea through lifeboat search and rescue, lifeguards, water safety initiatives. Falmouth RNLI lifeboat station is one of the busiest in the south west; and coinciding with its 150th anniversary this year, the charity has launched an appeal to raise £100,000 towards the cost of improvements to its station ahead of the arrival of its new Atlantic class inshore lifeboat in 2019.  

Hugh Dickinson, Sales Executive at Trelawny House, said: “As a developer, we believe it is incredibly important to create a positive legacy and to make a contribution to the communities in which we are building.  The volunteer crews of the Falmouth RNLI provide a life-saving service and we were very pleased to be able to show our support for such a worthy cause.  We are really pleased the afternoon tea party was a great success, and are thankful to all those who joined in the fun at Trelawny House to raise funds for a vital local charity.” 

Brenda Grieve, Fundraising Guild Treasurer at RNLI Falmouth said: “I really enjoyed the event and it was a great success. Lots of people attended and asked lots of questions about the RNLI in Falmouth. I’d encourage the homeowners to visit the lifeboats at the Harbour as it’s very close to Trelawny House. The homeowners loved the souvenirs and we would love to do another event with them!” 

Comprising an attractive selection of 44 one and two bedroom apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 55 and over, Trelawny House provides everything homeowners could want for a relaxing and enjoyable retirement. 

Homeowners can make the most of the beautiful landscaped gardens, knowing all the maintenance is taken care of.  They can also 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 comfortable guest suite. 

Trelawny House is now 90% sold, and prices for the remaining one-bedroom apartments currently start from £305,950.
