A VINTAGE tribute tea party will take place to mark the 40th anniversary of a retirement development builder.

The tea party will raise money for the Royal Voluntary Service, and it marks 40 years of McCarthy and Stone.

The party will take place at Keatley Place in Moreton and feature the nostalgic sounds of the 1950s and 1960s.

Nigel Gladwell, house manager at Keatley Place said: "We are really looking forward to hosting our vintage tea party in aid of Royal Voluntary Service.

"It is a fantastic cause and we are committed to helping the charity continue its work enriching the lives of older people and their families through their volunteers.

"Join us for plenty of toe-tapping, and celebrations as we raise a glass to the last 40 years at McCarthy and Stone, and look forward to the next. Anyone is welcome and it should be a fantastic event."

The vintage tea party will take place at the Retirement Living development on Thursday 20th April between 2pm and 4pm.

In return for a small donation to the Royal Voluntary Service, there will be a buffet offering tea, Prosecco, sandwiches, and homemade cakes.

To honour their 40th anniversary, McCarthy and Stone is partnering with Royal Voluntary Service throughout 2017; and the vintage tea party at Keatley Place is one of a series of events planned for the year, with the aim of raising over £130,000 to support the charity.

The vintage tea party will also provide an opportunity for retirees to take a tour of Keatley Place.

The vintage tea party is expected to be busy and spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

The Royal Voluntary Service helps to encourage older people to stay active, independent and able to continue to contribute to society.
