A gift of £500 towards entertainment was music to the ears of Age UK Northamptonshire.
Award-winning homebuilder Redrow, currently building at Carey Fields in Moulton, made the donation to its near neighbours at the Chappell House Age UK day centre in the village.
Age UK Northamptonshire’s Derry Miller said: “A survey by Age UK found that around one million older people regularly go an entire month without speaking to a friend, neighbour or family member, but we’re trying to tackle that by providing activities for older people. We currently have 10 clients who attend our day centre at Chappell House, where they benefit from being able to socialise with others. Thanks to Redrow’s kindness we’ve been able to book a number of entertainers including a variety of musicians to provide entertainment over the course of the next twelve months.”
Tonia Tyler, sales director for Redrow Homes (South Midlands), who are building a range of three, four and five-bedroom homes off Northampton Lane North, adds: “Moulton is a village with a real sense of community – it’s what makes it a popular place in which to live. We want to play an active role in the neighbourhood and, as Chappell House is less than half a mile from Carey Fields, we were happy to lend our support to Age UK by sponsoring the entertainment.”
