People living in Hitchin are invited to join retirees for a charity Winter Warmer event.

Churchill Retirement Living's Dovehouse Lodge is holding the event in its owners' lounge from 10.30am to 12.30pm on Friday, February 2.

Attendees can enjoy coffee, cake and a chat in exchange for a donation to the Hitchin branch of the Sue Ryder Charity.

All the money raised will go towards helping people with a terminal illness, a neurological condition or who have lost someone.

Tunji Quadri, regional marketing manager for Churchill Retirement Living, said: "We’re looking forward to welcoming people to our Winter Warmer event to raise funds for such a great charity, to help it continue its vital work.


"Every penny counts, which is why we’re asking as many people as possible to come along and support the event and make a donation in return for the refreshments on offer.

"It’s the perfect excuse to enjoy a bit of indulgence, as well as an opportunity for visitors to experience the lifestyle, friendship and community spirit on offer here."

Dovehouse Lodge in Wratten Road West has a collection of one and two-bed apartments for retirement living, along with an owners' lounge, guest suite and 24-hour emergency Careline service.
