October 1 marked International Older Person’s Day which works to bring our older community together and highlight their contribution to society.
In celebration of the day One Vision Housing hosted a number of events across their seven Retirement Housing schemes to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
In addition to donating home-baked treats, customers had fun playing games and holding raffles all in an effort to raise as much money as possible for charity.
With help from One Vision Housing’s customers and staff, an amazing £2,663.65 was raised for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Suzanne Meylan, Independent Living Manager said: “I’m so very proud of the Independent Living Team, our customers, friends and family in our seven Retirement Housing Schemes who have raised a fabulous £2,663.65 for Macmillan Cancer Support over the last few weeks.
“Every year the Independent Living team and our customers work hard together to put on a celebration to acknowledge International Older Person’s Day and raise much needed funds for Macmillan. The continued generosity from those who make up our communities never fails to disappoint. A huge thank you to all involved!”
