Churchill Foundation reaches fundraising milestone
Churchill Retirement Living’s charitable arm the Churchill Foundation has raised a total of over £1million since it was set up three years ago.
The impressive sum has been achieved through a wide variety of events, including golf tournaments, fashion shows, skydives, bake-offs and coffee mornings across Churchill Retirement Living’s 130-plus developments around the country.
The Foundation has supported over 100 different charities to date, including Hope For Food and Walking With The Wounded. It picks a handful of main charity partners to support with large events and donations each year, and also has a small grants programme offering one-off donations of up to £2,000 to various good causes all over the country.
Registered charities can apply to become a charity partner, or for a small grant, through the Foundation’s website at churchillfoundation.org.uk providing they align with at least one of the Churchill Foundation’s three core areas: the relief of sickness, disease and human suffering; the promotion of health amongst older people; and the support and wellbeing of the young.
Spencer and Clinton McCarthy, Churchill Retirement Living’s Co-Founders and Foundation trustees said:
“The Churchill Foundation is our way of giving something back to the communities where we work, and we’re very proud of what it’s achieved in such a short space of time.
“This success has already made a big difference to the main charity partners we’ve supported, as well as a huge number of smaller charities all over the country, and we’ve helped transform many people’s lives.
“We’d like to thank everyone who has supported the Churchill Foundation in achieving this success, from our Colleagues and owners to our business partners and the wider public.
Now our job is to build on this success, continuing to support those in need, and building a legacy that will keep benefiting our local communities for many years to come.”
