Richmond Village goes glittery

17th January 2019

A huge sparkly thank you to staff, residents and visitors at Richmond Village in Painswick, Gloucestershire, who got their glitter on for us at a pre-Christmas party to help fight meningitis

Meningitis Now Get Your Glitter On Richmond Village

Following a ‘Wear your Christmas Jumper’ day at the luxury retirement Richmond Village on Thursday 20 December, everyone changed into something a bit more sparkly for a glass of seasonal cheer and to take part in our festive fundraiser Get Your Glitter On.

Steve Griffin, Village Manager, said, “Get Your Glitter On was the perfect excuse to start the festive season with a sparkle whilst helping to save lives and rebuild futures."

“We were delighted to support our local charity Meningitis Now and their unique range of services through this event.” 

Christmas jumper day

Those joining in donated £1 to the charity for wearing their Christmas jumper during the day. The early evening party included cocktails and a raffle, with proceeds going to support our work. 

Leah Wynn, our Community Fundraiser who joined in the fun, said, “We’re so grateful to everyone at Richmond Village for supporting our work in this way – and what a lovely time we all had."

“If anyone wasn’t already in the festive mood this event would certainly have got them there. And their support will make a real difference to those who are at risk from meningitis and those whose lives have already been changed forever because of it – thank you."
