When Rochelle Carter did a search on the internet for suitable retirement villages for her parents, little did she know it would lead to her winning a $5,000 travel prize! She enquired via Living Choice’s website on 6th February 2015, visited Living Choice Glenhaven with her parents Helen and George Downie on the 20th February and one week later, they had reserved their new home at Glenhaven!
Helen and George moved into the village in December 2015 and their daughter’s name was entered in the draw for those who had successfully referred someone to either Glenhaven or Leisure Lea Gardens during the 2015/2016 financial year. There were 22 names in the draw, held at the Glenhaven leisure centre on 22 July, and Rochelle’s name was the lucky last one to be drawn. Having just started a new job, Rochelle could not be present however George and Helen were delighted to accept the prize on her behalf from General Manager, Jason Sack.
The Gala Reward Event is a highlight on the residents’ calendar and this year’s event was made more special with beautiful piano playing by resident Val Thomas.
