Chequeing in for charities that matter to Cumbrian communities

Posted on February 18, 2015 | Charity, News

We are reinforcing our Cumbrian roots by donating to two of the charities that matter greatly to people living in the county.

We have raised money for both the Great North Air Ambulance and Macmillan Cancer Support. We started supporting both charities in 2001, recognising their importance to local communities across Cumbria.

Both charities will receive a cheque for £495, raised from a charity quiz night staged at Kendal Golf Club on November 6, 2014.

This was the 14th Annual Charity Quiz Night and sixteen teams took up the challenge to compete, including estate agents, solicitors, surveyors, subcontractors and financial advisors all taking part. The winners were Rogerson Homeserve+.

The cheque presentations were held at our new development Cragg Close, which has already proved incredibly popular with those seeking quality homes in Kendal, close to amenities, schools and the main work hubs.

The cheques were accepted by Darren Ashton and Heather Stamper, on behalf of the Great North Air Ambulance and by Sue MacDonald, a charity worker at Macmillan Cancer Support.

Elaine Goulding, who presented the cheques, said: “We believe in supporting good causes and initiatives that matter to local residents, through raising money for charities and also sponsoring events such as the All England Stone Skimming Championships, which raise funds for vital conservation work conducted by South Cumbria Rivers Trust.

“We must thank all the businesses that participated in our quiz night and urge them all to start swotting up for the Russell Armer Homes Charity Quiz Night 2015!”
