AN ORGANISATION which provides homes for many older people in Bradford is down to the last three for a national housing award.

Hanover Housing Association has reached the final of the 50+ Awards, in the category for Best 50+ Assisted Living Provider.

The association has 17 estates in Bradford with homes for those aged over 55 and it has reached the final as a result of internet votes cast by people in the over 50s age group.

The awards were established in 2012 to recognise the best companies providing services for those aged 50 and over.

Fran Scammell, estate manager for Hanover, said: “We are thrilled that Hanover has reached the finals. Hanover Close is a vibrant estate with fantastic residents. If you would like any further information please contact me on (01275) 446194."

Voting is open until the July 1, via the website.

Winners will be announced at the 50+ Show on Wednesday, July 10, 2014 at the Olympia Exhibition Centre in London.
