Churchill celebrates raising over £57,000 for Macmillan in 2021

The Churchill Group is celebrating having raised over £57,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support in 2021 by taking part in the charity’s “World’s Biggest Coffee Morning” campaign for the 12th year running.

Apartment Owners and Colleagues up and down the country took part by hosting coffee mornings, cake sales, bake-off competitions and raffles to help support the campaign. Some Colleagues even went the extra mile with personal challenges to boost the fundraising total, like the ‘Walking 9 to 5’ team from Churchill’s Ringwood and Exeter offices who raised over £2,000 by taking on a gruelling sponsored hike through the Wye Valley.


The Company also donated £5 for every new Customer who made an appointment to visit its Sales Offices at new developments across the country. Churchill has a special relationship with Macmillan Cancer Support and has now raised over £600,000 for the charity since 2009.

Concorde Lodge in Bristol raised the most for an individual development, with an impressive total of £2,415. Other top fundraisers who deserve a special mention are Gidea Lodge in Romford (£2,135), Greenacres Lodge in Warlingham (£1,672), Beatrice Lodge in Sittingbourne (£1,216) and Chantry Lodge in Andover (£1,104).

Lisa Sainsbury, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, said:

“We are extremely grateful and humbled by the amazing fundraising and support of the Churchill Colleagues and Owners.  During such a challenging time, they have really shown what community spirit and sheer determination they truly have.  The £57,000 they have raised this year could pay for a Macmillan nurse for almost a year, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential medical, practical and emotional support. Thank you so much from everyone at Macmillan Cancer Support, we truly value your ongoing partnership.”

Spencer McCarthy, Chairman & CEO of Churchill Retirement Living, added:

“It was great to be involved once again in Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, and I’m very proud to have smashed our fundraising target for Macmillan. These events are a fantastic way to raise money for a very worthy cause but also an opportunity to bring our Lodges and the local community together after a difficult 18 months. We also had a handful of Colleagues taking on some impressive personal challenges to help us reach our target, so I’d like to thank everyone involved for helping us to raise such an impressive total yet again this year.”
