Local MHA Community Coordinator Heather Shaw received a Christmas gift to remember when she was selected as guest of honour at Churchill Retirement Living’s ‘Festive Cheer’ event at Colebrooke Lodge in Reigate.
Heather was nominated as a ‘Festive VIP’ by friends and Colleagues at the development, who felt that she deserved a treat this Christmas in recognition of her impressive dedication to making a difference in the community, through her work with the MHA.
The event on Tuesday 12th December included festive drinks, Christmas music, and a special Christmas hamper and £100 M&S voucher for Heather, who enjoyed joining in with the festivities.
Churchill’s ‘Festive Cheer’ initiative had asked people up and down the country to nominate someone who deserved to be rewarded for their volunteering or charity work this year, or someone who is lonely or has faced some hard times, or simply a loved one who deserves to be spoiled this Christmas.
Churchill’s Senior Marketing Manager Anne Scherrer said: “Our Festive Cheer events were designed to spread some seasonal magic, and we’re delighted to have done that for Heather here in Reigate. She makes a difference to many older people’s lives through her work with the MHA, including several of our apartment Owners, and she is a very deserving winner.”
Churchill provides purpose-built one and two-bedroom privately-owned apartments for the over 60s, set amongst attractive landscaped gardens. All developments come with an Owners’ Lounge for events and socialising, a Guest Suite where family and friends can stay, a Lodge Manager, free parking, secure camera entry and a 24-hour call centre support system.
