Leading house builder Kier Living Eastern has raised money for Macmillan Cancer Support after taking part in its charity fundraiser, the World's Biggest Coffee Morning.
Buckinghamshire residents jumped at the chance to join the Kier Living team at The Avenue in Aylesbury for coffee and cake and to get a preview of the company's new Canalside development, which is situated next to the Grand Union Canal.
Visitors received pre-launch details on the 74 three and four bedroom houses and two-bedroom apartments at Canalside, which are perfectly placed on the outskirts of Buckinghamshire's bustling county town. Throughout the morning visitors turned up to register their interest in the new development, and two of the homes were quickly snapped up by eager buyers.
Jane Johnson, regional sales and marketing manager for Kier Living Eastern, said: "Macmillan is Kier's charity partner so taking part in the World's Biggest Coffee Morning seemed like the perfect way to continue fundraising efforts while giving our guests the chance to find out more about Canalside.
"We are delighted by the response to the new homes and given that two were sold within an hour of their launch, we have no double that Canalside is going to be hugely popular with buyers.
The coffee morning is just one of a range of fundraising initiatives organised by Kier Living Eastern throughout the year to raise money for charity. Earlier this year it raised £7,000 for The Kier foundation, a registered charity that supports Macmillan and a myriad of other worthy causes chosen by Kier employees, through its annual charity golf competition.
