New Cirencester retirement village teams up with town charity

Aura Care Living has announced that their Regional Charity of the Year will be Cirencester’s The Churn Project.

The Churn Project supports the most vulnerable and marginalised people of the Cirencester area. Their aim is to reduce isolation and improve well-being for local people, particularly for those who are lonely, at a point of transition in their lives or experiencing mental health issues. They support people at times of crisis.

Aura care Living are currently building a retirement village and care home on the outskirts of the town called Stratton Court. Director Peter Lloyd recognises the values of The Churn and instantly wanted to align with them. “They directly support over 1200 people each year, focusing on people who are unemployed, vulnerable families and older people by providing activities each week ranging from antenatal classes, to work clubs, to memory clubs,” he said.

“Stratton Court will also host activities and ways in which residents can get involved so we recognise the good work The Churn are doing,” he added.

Aura Care Living are to host a series of events over the next year with proceeds going to The Churn Project. The first of which is to be a Family Fun Day, to be held in Stratton on the 24th of September.

“We’re very pleased to have been selected by Aura Care Living” said Fran Embleton-Smith, CEO of the Churn Project. “We have been supporting local people for 16 years and it means a lot to us to have the support of local people and local businesses in return.“
