A company that are building houses in Cromer are on the hunt for a local charity to support in and around the area.

The award-winning retirement housebuilding company, McCarthy and Stone, are now in the second phase of the Justice Court development on Holt Road.

Once completed, Justice Court will be luxury retirement living apartments, aimed exclusively at people over 60.

As the construction is well underway, they are pledging to offer support to neighbourhood projects, charities and one-off events in the area.

Cheryl Bissett, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy and Stone East Midlands, said: 'As the development in Cromer starts to take shape and become part of the local landscape, it is part of our ongoing commitment to help build a positive legacy in the local community. Therefore it is fantastic to be able to offer to help causes, be it individuals or groups that are close to locals' hearts in Cromer.

'Our Justice Court development has already attracted interest from local purchasers wanting to stay in the area, but who are looking to downsize to a more manageable and lower maintenance property. I would therefore encourage anyone interested in securing one of these stunning apartments for themselves to get in touch without delay.'

McCarthy and Stone want to hear from local causes which require support in the form of donations; and while it cannot guarantee funding in every case, it has vowed to help as many organisations in the Cromer area as possible.
