Churchill Foundation reaches £1,000,000 fundraising milestone

Churchill Retirement Living is proud to announce that its charitable arm the Churchill Foundation has raised a total of over £1,000,000 since it was set up less than three years ago.

The impressive total has been achieved through a wide variety of events, including a Super Car Show, shooting events, golf tournaments, fashion shows, skydives, bake-offs, coffee mornings and other initiatives across Churchill Retirement Living’s 130+ developments around the country. It could not have been done without the generous support of Churchill Colleagues, Owners, subcontractors, suppliers and business partners, as well as its management company Millstream Management Services.

The Foundation has supported over 100 different charities to date, including its main charity partners for 2018 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 a wide range of 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 here. Applications are welcome from charities that 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 Trustees of the Churchill Foundation, 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. To reach £1,000,000 in less than three years is phenomenal. 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.”
