Southport Botanic Gardens Community Association receives a helping hand from McCarthy and Stone

MCCARTHY and Stone, the house builder behind the 'Brunlees Court Retirement Living Plus' development in Southport, has presented Botanic Gardens Community Association with a ₤500 donation as part of its ongoing commitment to make a positive contribution to the local area. The Botanic Gardens Community Association was formed in December 2011 with the aim of finding ways of helping with running costs and reviving the fortunes of the popular Botanic Gardens in Churchtown, Southport. The association is formed of over 70 volunteers who help with the physical work in the gardens and organising fundraising events.

McCarthy and Stone's ₤500 donation will support the Botanic Gardens with its ongoing commitment to the local area, which includes maintaining the gardens in all year round and hosting events for the people of Southport. David Cobham, Chairman at the Botanic Gardens Community Association, visited McCarthy and Stone's Brunlees Court development. He was greeted by Sales Executive Jane Sandiford who presented Mr Cobham with a cheque for ₤500. Mr Cobham said:- "All of our volunteers work tirelessly to ensure the popular Botanic Gardens are well maintained, and can continue to be enjoyed by the local community.  We are all thankful to McCarthy and Stone for its generous donation, which will help the Botanic Gardens Community Association to conserve and enhance the beautiful environment in which we live and work".

Fiona Brooks, Regional Sales and Marketing Director McCarthy and Stone North West, added:- "As a company we appreciate that our responsibilities go further than developing quality retirement properties; we also seek to create a positive legacy and make a difference in the communities in which we build.  At our new Retirement Living Plus development in Southport, Brunlees Court, we have beautiful gardens and several of our homeowners enjoy keeping active and help out in the gardens; so it is an absolute pleasure to present this donation to a very important community association. We wish the team every success with its ongoing efforts to keep the Botanic Gardens as a thriving destination for the people of Southport."
