Churchill Retirement Living has announced that its charitable arm the Churchill Foundation has raised a total of over £250,000 in its first full year.
This impressive total will help a wide range of charities, including the Foundation’s main partner charities for 2016, Macmillan Cancer Support, The Silver Line, ChildLine and WellChild.
The Churchill Foundation is a registered charity, with Dame Esther Rantzen DBE as its Patron. The Foundation enables Churchill to support the many local communities where it works, and give to a wide range of charities based on three core areas: the relief of sickness, disease and human suffering; the promotion of health amongst the elderly; and the support and wellbeing of the young.
As well as its main partner charities, the Foundation also runs a Small Grants programme to support many different local organisations and causes all over the UK.
Spencer McCarthy, Churchill Retirement Living’s Chairman & CEO and a Trustee of the Churchill Foundation, said, “At Churchill Retirement Living we believe strongly in giving something back to the communities we build in. The Churchill Foundation is a relatively new initiative that we are very proud of and its aim is to transform people’s lives by supporting a wide range of charities. We’re delighted with the success it’s achieved in its first full year, raising well over a quarter of a million pounds for national and local causes which all mean a lot to us.
“We are keen to support the communities in which we build, so if you know of a local group, school, charity or cause who needs some extra help, then please get in touch and we may be able to help.”
