DEVELOPER McCarthy and Stone has given a boost to charities in Salisbury.

It is in the final stages of construction at its Monument Place development in Salisbury, which is set to become McCarthy and Stone’s 100th Retirement Living Plus community, and to celebrate it has donated £100 to local causes.

Donations were made to Horatio’s Garden, Burnbake Trust, Cancer Support Salisbury, Alzheimer’s Support Wiltshire and Salisbury Hospice Charity.

Beth Keever, Fundraising Assistant at Horatio’s Garden South West, said: “At Horatio’s Garden, we are dedicated to supporting the local community as much as we can. However, in order for us to do this, we are dependent on the generosity of others, which is why we are absolutely thrilled to have received a donation from McCarthy and Stone. We really can’t thank them enough.”

Nicki Beswarick, of McCarthy and Stone Southern, added: “An important part of what we do here at McCarthy and Stone is support initiatives in the communities in which we build to help create a lasting, positive legacy.

"We will be opening the doors to our Monument Place Retirement Living Plus development in November and this is a very important milestone for us, so we wanted to celebrate by giving something back to the local community.

"It was an absolute pleasure to present the donations to these very deserving charities, particularly at a time when many local initiatives have had to put most of their fundraising efforts on hold.

"All of us here at McCarthy and Stone in Salisbury wish them every success with their work in helping to improve lives of so many within the community.”
