A choir from Merton Court Preparatory School joined homeowners and staff at McCarthy and Stone’s Sidcup development, Sydney Court, to raise the roof for Royal Voluntary Service.

The Sing Your Heart Out event at the Retirement Living Plus development in Lansdown Road, Sidcup, was one of a series of musical performances which have been taking place up and down the country to raise funds for the older people’s charity.

The event at Sydney Court continued celebrations for McCarthy and Stone’s 40th anniversary.

To honour this important milestone, McCarthy and Stone has partnered with Royal Voluntary Service on a series of fundraising initiatives throughout 2017, with the aim of raising over £130,000 in support of projects across the country.

Georgina Akers, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy and Stone South East, said: “Our Sing Your Heart Out event was a huge success; the choir was in fine voice and it was great to hear everyone joining in with a fantastic repertoire of festive favourites. It really was an uplifting afternoon, and we are grateful to Merton Court Primary School. Knoll Road, for helping us to show our support for Royal Voluntary Service in this way.”
