Housebuilder Bellway Manchester turned pink for charity during the month of October, with its popular development, Marmalade at the Jam Factory on Manchester Road in Droylsden, raising £1662 for Breast Cancer UK.
Chris Clayton and Pamela Taylor, Bellway’s sales advisors at Marmalade, hosted afternoon tea at the development inviting residents and interested purchasers to attend. Having dressed the sales and marketing suite in pink, and with a fabulous pink free flow balloon display at the entrance of the development, all guests were encouraged to bake a cake and bring it along.
The event was a great success. Mei Chee Ko, a resident at Marmalade, was chosen by Nina Jackson-Clayton, Bellway’s sales manager, as the winner of the cake competition, receiving a £150 gift voucher. Mei Chee Ko’s Japanese cheesecake really impressed guests.
Nina says: “Hosting the Breast Cancer Awareness event was a wonderful way to reconnect with residents at Marmalade, as well as spend time getting to know potential purchasers. It was a really relaxed afternoon, and all the cakes were superb, but the cheesecake was my favourite!”
In addition to the event at Marmalade at the Jam Factory, Bellway Manchester hosted a series of events for Breast Cancer UK during October at Grey Gables Farm in Bamber Bridge, Royal Bowland Park in Westhoughton and Park Gate Village in Knutsford.
Nina concludes: “Being involved in the local community is so important to Bellway and we are thrilled to have raised £1662 for such an important cause.”
There is currently a selection of two bedroom apartments available at Marmalade at the Jam Factory, with prices starting from £187,995. With two stunning show homes to view, a visit to the development is a must, open seven days a week. For further information, please call 0161 516 8205 or visit www.bellway.co.uk.
