Waterlooville development company raising cash for centre

Have your say

LUXURY hot chocolate, liqueur coffees and a selection of cakes will be on offer at a fundraising morning.

People in Waterlooville are being invited to join Churchill Retirement Living at Apsley Lodge for an event to raise cash for The Rainbow Centre, in Fareham.

The development company is calling for people to go to the lodge, on London Road, and enjoy hot chocolate, liqueur coffees and cakes in return for a small donation. It is on February 23 at 11am.

All of the money raised will go towards The Rainbow Centre which supports children with cerebral palsy and other motor-skill problems as well as adults with MS, Parkinson’s or have suffered a stroke or head injury.

The Churchill Foundation, Churchill’s new charity, will also match funds raised at selected lodges across the region.

Spencer McCarthy, chairman and chief executive at Churchill Retirement Living, said: ‘We’re delighted to be holding our warming morning event to raise funds for such a worthwhile cause to help it continue its vital work in the community.

‘Every penny counts and so we’re asking as many people as possible to come along and support our event by digging deep, while having a really great time too.

‘It’s the perfect excuse to enjoy a bit of indulgence, as well as an ideal opportunity for visitors to experience the lifestyle on offer at the lodge.’

Apsley Lodge is a collection of one and two-bedroom privately-owned retirement apartments for the over-60s.
