‘Our charity of the year’
17 January 2014
We’re delighted to announce our new charitable partnership with the Royal Voluntary Service, the older people’s charity which provides practical and personal support for older people in the UK.
We’ve made a commitment to our new ‘Charity of the Year’ to raise at least £75,000 for them before the end of 2014 through a combination of national events, as well as fundraising and volunteering initiatives across our 150 retirement developments.
Here’s an infographic to demonstrate their work and the vital services they provide to help older people all across the country. The monies raised will go to support the 40,000 volunteers Royal Voluntary Service has across the UK, each of whom are dedicated to helping older people stay active, independent and connected to their community.
If you’d like to help the Royal Voluntary Service with a donation text MCAS13, followed by the amount you want to donate (eg £3, £5, £10) to 7070.
