McCarthy Stone Offer a Helping Hand to Beccles Primary Academy
Helping Hands are a small group of parents and volunteers that help to oversee fundraising and other projects at the school. The donation from McCarthy Stone has helped them in their latest endeavour - to transform a double decker bus into an exciting new classroom and play area for the children.
Laura Pigney at Helping Hands, said: “We are very grateful to McCarthy Stone for the donation. Covid has meant It’s been quite an unusual couple of years for all the children, which is why we wanted to surprise them with an exciting new area in which to learn and play. The children’s faces were a real picture when we unveiled the finished project and they’ve already been having lots of fun on board the bus!’”
Cheryl Bissett, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone Midlands said: “Here at McCarthy Stone, we appreciate our responsibilities go further than building high-quality retirement apartments - we also seek to create a positive legacy in the communities in which we build. It was wonderful to help support such an exciting project for the school and we hope that the children get lots of enjoyment from the bus for years to come.”
Foundry Place comprises 55 one and two-bedroom apartments. The development will also feature a stylish communal lounge, ideal for socialising; beautiful, landscaped gardens in which to relax; and a hotel-style guest suite, which provides a comfortable stay for visiting family and friends.
Designed to provide complete peace-of-mind, there will be an Estates team on hand around the clock, along with a security entrance system and 24-hour emergency call points. An on-site bistro will serve fresh and nutritious meals daily for those who do not wish to cook in their apartments, and domestic assistance packages can be tailored to suit individuals.
Prices currently start from £217,950 for a one bedroom apartment and £308,950 for a two bedroom apartment. Located just a short walk from the town centre, the developments are also ideally situated for easy access to Beccles’ amenities, including the famous market square, a variety of shops and eateries.
