Residents of Kendal have been invited to visit Eddington Lodge for a Winter Warmer event.

The event, being held by Churchill Retirement Living, is set to raise funds for the charity South Lakeland Action for Children.

On February 15, between 10.30am and 12.30pm, attendees will be treated to warm coffee, cake, and a chat in the Owners’ Lounge, in return for a small donation.

The funds raised will support the charity's child and family support services across the region.

Lisa Obertelli, area sales manager for Churchill Retirement Living, said: "We’re looking forward to welcoming people to our Winter Warmer event to raise funds for such a great charity, to help it continue its vital work.

"Every penny counts, which is why we’re asking as many people as possible to come along and support the event and make a donation in return for the refreshments on offer.

"It’s the perfect excuse to enjoy a bit of indulgence, as well as an opportunity for visitors to experience the lifestyle, friendship and community spirit on offer here.”

Similar Winter Warmer events by Churchill Retirement Living are scheduled throughout February at their retirement developments nationwide, with all proceeds going towards local causes chosen by the apartment owners and colleagues.

Developed by Churchill Retirement Living, Eddington Lodge comprises one and two-bedroom retirement apartments designed for independent living.

They are currently on sale, offering additional benefits like a sociable Owners’ Lounge, a guest suite for relatives to stay, a lodge manager, and a 24-hour emergency Careline service.
