The Munro and Church Families’ partnership began Althorp Village in 1999 with a view to creating a vertically integrated environment for those entering their "third age" in life. With the Geriatric Hospital and Lifestyle Village fully established in 2020, the Directors were able to fulfil their goal of giving back to those less fortunate in our community.
Identifying and prioritising worthy recipients proved challenging, so an introductory meeting with Acorn was arranged. A short and professional presentation by Acorn Foundation convinced them that Acorn was the organisation that would meet their needs and they set up a Corporate Fund.
The Directors say that the opportunity to create a fund that will serve the community long into the future is hugely rewarding to all involved in Althorp, including staff and residents.
