West Sussex retirement development to spread festive cheer with Christmas events
and live on Freeview channel 276
The McIndoe Lodge Festive Cheer event is on Tuesday, December 12 (2pm and 4pm) with refreshments, mulled wine and singalong Christmas Carols.
McIndoe Lodge is also hosting a Christmas Open Day on Saturday, December 2, when visitors can drop in for mince pies and drinks (11am to 3pm).
Anne Scherrer, Churchill’s senior marketing manager, said: “Christmas at a Churchill development is a very special time. Unfortunately, this can be in stark contrast to how many older people experience the festive period. According to Age UK, almost 1.5 million older people feel lonelier at Christmas than any other time of year.”
Churchill is inviting local people to nominate friends and relatives over 60 who they think deserve a magical experience. The winner can attend the event as a guest of honour and will get a Christmas hamper and a £100 M&S gift voucher. To nominate someone visit churchillretirement.co.uk/festive-cheer. The closing date for entries is November 30.
Mrs Scherrer said: “Our Festive Cheer events are designed to spread the magic this Christmas. They are open to everyone, but we wanted to make the experience unique for one special VIP. Perhaps you know someone who should be rewarded for their commitment to volunteering or charity work this year, an individual who is experiencing loneliness or has faced some hard times recently, or simply a loved one who deserves to be spoiled this Christmas. Winners are invited to bring guests along.”
