Renaissance owners in Romsey raise £3,000 for charities

Owners at Renaissance Retirement's Fleur-de-Lis private development on Duttons Road in Romsey have raised over £3,000 for local and national charities in the last six months.

Coffee mornings fund raisers with raffles, cake stalls and guess the name of the bear competitions have helped raise money for Macmillan Cancer Research, Naomi House, the RNLI and Dementia Care UK.

The group are now planning further events for Parkinsons UK and Cancer research.

Rachael O'Keefe, concierge at Renaissance Retirement's Fleur-de-Lis, said: "The owners have formed a fantastic community who are very charitably minded. They have an incredible enthusiasm and real zest for this new stage in their lives."

Rachael added: "Over and above all the fund raising activities, the owners have donated in excess of 65 bags of clothes and unwanted objects to Naomi House, which is the chosen charity for Renaissance Retirement. Each bag can be worth up to £30, so that has helped with the fundraising."

Rachael concluded: "I am immensely proud of their achievements. This is an amazing group of people who show real spirit and support, not only of each other, but also to the wider community that they now live in. Their energy and enthusiasm is really wonderful to be a part of, I am delighted to be able to support and encourage them to achieve what they want to."
