Specialist developer of luxury retirement apartments, Adlington, has demonstrated its support for those affected by the recent Manchester attack, donating £1000 to the JustGiving online, ‘We Love Manchester’ Emergency Fund.
£1000 is to be donated to the appeal, £500 was raised by the sales team at Adlington’s Urmston development, and this figure has been matched by head office, based in Congleton, after Dale Johnson, Iryna Karnaukhava and Caroline Parkinson dressed as Manchester worker bees for an entire day to raise money for the cause.
Manchester City Council launched the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund in partnership with the British Red Cross after the attack on Manchester Arena last month, to support those injured or bereaved by the attack.
Claire Reede, Sales and Marketing Manager at Adlington, commented:“We were devastated about the recent attack on Manchester, and as it’s a community so close to our hearts, we were really keen to do something to show our unity with the city. With the worker bee becoming such a renowned symbol as a result of the tragedies of May 22nd, we felt it only right to make it a part of the fundraising we did for the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, and I’m very pleased Adlington is able to contribute to this worthy cause.”
Adlington is currently building an £11m luxury retirement development on Moorside Road in Urmston, which will consist of 55 one, two and three bedroom apartments, along with stylish communal areas, exclusively for the over 60s and specifically designed for later living. Homeowners enjoy optional 24-hour care and support as well as generous living and dining spaces, fully-fitted modern kitchens and balconies or patios. Residents are also offered the use of a spa room, a table-service restaurant, a hairdressing salon, lounge as well as an activities and crafts room.
