Apartment owners at Churchill Retirement Living’s Sachs Lodge development in Torquay have pulled together to raise over Â£500 for their local RNLI Torbay Lifeboat charity. Their fundraising throughout the year included a special art exhibition by the Lodge’s resident watercolour specialist Alan Lark, and a weekly tai chi session in the Owners’ Lounge hosted by his wife Liz in return for donations.
Alan, Liz and their fellow Owners presented a cheque to RNLI Torbay Vice Chairman Jill Passmore in the development’s comfortable Owners’ Lounge, where most of the fundraising took place.
Lodge manager Jo Beasley said: “It’s great that Alan and Liz have been able to raise so much with the help of all our apartment owners here at Sachs Lodge. Liz’s weekly tai chi classes are very popular and Alan’s art exhibition was a huge success, so we’re proud to see them present this cheque to a local charity that means a lot to our owners.”
