Larkfleet Homes (www.larkfleethomes.co.uk) developments across Lincolnshire are taking part in the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ (http://coffee.macmillan.org.uk) on Friday 26 September – Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event.
The ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ encourages businesses and individuals from all over the UK – and sometimes further afield – to hold an informal coffee morning where donations are made to the charity in exchange for a cup of coffee.
Sales offices at Larkfleet’s developments The Garage and The Croft in Bourne, and Glen Grange in Pinchbeck will each host a coffee morning on 26 September as part of the national fundraising event.
Larkfleet’s sales offices at its Leighfield Park development in Oakham will also take part.
Last year, Macmillan Cancer Support’s ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ raised just over £20.5 million.
Karl Hick, managing director of Larkfleet Homes, said: “Macmillan Cancer Support provides medical, emotional, practical and financial support for cancer sufferers and their families and Larkfleet is delighted to take part in the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ event to try and raise as much money as possible for this cause.
“I would urge anyone in Bourne or Pinchbeck on 26 September to visit our sales offices at The Croft, The Garage or Glen Grange for a cup of coffee in exchange for a small donation and be part of something that can really make a difference to those whose lives are affected by cancer.”
The Croft comprises 75 one, two and three bedroom homes, including bungalows, set around attractively landscaped gardens. It offers high quality living for the over 55s, perfect for those who want independent, stylish yet secure living.
The Garage comprises a range of 14 individually-designed three and four-bedroom houses– ideal for first- time buyers or young families looking for a quality new home with a little more room.
The government’s Help to Buy scheme is available at The Garage so homebuyers could potentially own 100 per cent of a new home with just a 75 per cent mortgage and 5 per cent deposit.
With the scheme, after homebuyers have provided a five per cent deposit and obtained a conventional mortgage for just 75 per cent of the purchase price, they will receive an equity loan from the government for the remaining 20 per cent (subject to approval). The equity loan is interest free for five years and can be repaid at any time or on the sale of the home.
Larkfleet offers its own equity share scheme at Glen Grange to help first-time buyers onto the housing ladder which allows homebuyers to potentially own a new home but only pay 85 per cent of the total cost.
Larkfleet pays the remaining 15 per cent and homebuyers have five or ten years to pay back the amount Larkfleet contributed towards the cost of the property. No interest is added to the amount homebuyers have borrowed from Larkfleet during this five or ten year period and the property can be sold at any time.
The equity-share scheme is perfect for young couples who are looking to purchase their very own home but can’t quite afford the full purchase price. It is also available to growing families who are looking to take the next step on the property ladder.
