Larkfleet’s Leighfield Park Development To Support Cancer Charity In World’s Biggest Coffee Morning Event

Sales staff at Leighfield Park, Larkfleet Homes’ ( housing development in Oakham, are taking part in the ‘World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ ( 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.

Leighfield Park – part of Oakham Heights, Larkfleet’s major urban expansion of Oakham – will host a coffee morning on 26 September at its sales office as part of the national fundraising event.

Larkfleet’s sales offices at its Glen Grange, The Garage and The Croft developments in Lincolnshire 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 the Oakham area on 26 September to visit the Leighfield Park sales office 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.”

Properties at Leighfield Park range from one bedroom apartments from just £114,995 – perfect for young professionals – to five bedroom family homes for growing families at £289,995.

The location of the development, on land between the Oakham bypass and Barleythorpe Road, is also ideal, offering the best of rural living with excellent transport links. The area offers several outstanding schools and Rutland Water, one of Europe’s largest man-made lakes, is less than seven miles from Oakham.

All houses (not apartments) at Leighfield Park will have solar PV (photovoltaic) panels fitted as standard so homebuyers can benefit from reduced energy bills. The PV panels will produce electricity from daylight, generating useable power even on cloudy days.

The government’s Help to Buy scheme is available at Leighfield Park 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.
