£97,000 donated to Armed Forces charity

Churchill's Emma and Clinton McCarthy present a special cheque to Walking With The Wounded charity

The Churchill Foundation, charitable arm of Ringwood housebuilder Churchill Retirement Living, has donated a cheque for £97,555 to Armed Forces charity Walking With The Wounded to coincide with Remembrance Day and the centenary of the end the First World War.
Walking With The Wounded is a national Armed Forces charity raising funds to retrain and re-skill wounded servicemen and women, and support them in finding new careers outside the military.
The charity is one of the Churchill Foundation’s main charity partners for 2018, meaning it benefits from large fundraising events organised by the Foundation throughout the year, such as the Christchurch Super Car Show in the summer. The Foundation has made a number of previous donations to Walking With The Wounded throughout its partnership, totalling over £174,000 to date.
Registered charities can apply to become a charity partner, or for a small grant of up to £2,000, through the Foundation’s website at churchillfoundation.org.uk. Applications are welcome from charities that align with at least one of the Churchill Foundation’s three core areas: the relief of sickness, disease and human suffering; the promotion of health amongst older people; and the support and wellbeing of the young.
Clinton McCarthy, Churchill Retirement Living’s Managing Director and a Trustee of the Churchill Foundation, said:
“Remembrance Day is an important occasion for the hundreds of retired servicemen and women who live in our developments around the country. At this time of year our thoughts turn to the many brave people who have served in our armed forces over the years, and this donation to Walking With The Wounded is our way of recognising their sacrifices. The Churchill Foundation was created to give something back to the communities where we work, and we’re proud to support the fantastic work Walking With The Wounded does to help make a difference.”
