Leading retirement village operator LifeCare Residents (LCR) has raised £8,382 for The Hampstead Wells and Campden Trust.
The money was raised through the operator’s Route 66 bike ride from its Grove Place retirement community in Romsey, Hampshire to Battersea Place, opposite Battersea Park in London.
Richard Davis, CEO, LCR, said: “We are delighted to repeat our Route 66 charity fundraiser for the second consecutive year, and that so many of our colleagues – and residents, were able to participate.
“As well as being a worthwhile endeavour for the community, the bike ride also helps us to promote our core belief that, with regular exercise and the help of our dedicated fitness and care teams, our residents can enjoy prolonged good health, as well as the freedom to retain their independence and quality of life for as long as possible.”
A team of 21 cyclists undertook the 92 mile cross country challenge, led by cycling enthusiasts Richard Davis, chief executive officer of LCR, and Craig Percy, chief operating officer, accompanied by representatives from both retirement communities, including Cliff Hasler, general manager at Grove Place.
The Hampstead Wells and Campden Trust supports elderly people in Hampstead making provisions for 130 pensions as well as over 3,500 annual grants that total over £500,000.
LCR is an international retirement village operator with communities in New Zealand and the UK.
