The UK's leading retirement builder, McCarthy & Stone, has so far raised over £350 for Barnardo's through its fundraising endeavours at the 2011 Congleton Half Marathon.
Having rallied a team of runners to tackle the 13.5 mile course on behalf of the children's charity, McCarthy & Stone also undertook bucket collections and competitions to raise much needed funds for the regional branch of Barnardo's within the local community.
As an official sponsor of this year's event, the Congleton Half Marathon marked McCarthy & Stone's first community venture following the announcement that it is to construct 44 new Retirement Living properties in the Mill Green area of the town.
Fiona Brooks, Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy & Stone, said: "As a developer, we're aware that it's important that we not only help to create communities where people want to live, but also make a positive contribute to society more broadly, which is why we chose to support the Congleton Half Marathon.
"We keenly promote the benefits gained from living an active lifestyle in retirement, so were proud to be part of an event which encourages both the enjoyment of exercise and a sense of fun within the local community.
"We received a very warm welcome on the day from both the organisers at Congleton Harriers Running Club, the Mayor of Congleton and local residents. We cannot thank them all enough for supporting our fundraising efforts for our charity of the year, Barnardo's, and look forward to meeting everyone again at future community events."
McCarthy & Stone offers secure yet comfortable environments in which the over 60's can make the most of their retirement years, with the peace of mind that they still own their own property.
A selection of purpose built one and two bedroom retirement apartments are currently available for purchase at both Beatty Court, on Holland Walk in Nantwich and Bernard Court on Chester Road in Holmes Chapel. Each development has a stylish show complex, which are available to view every Tuesday to Saturday, between 10.30am and 5pm.
