When Mr and Mrs Walkden decided to retire they called upon Bespoke Care having liaised with Anita Allen for many years. Stephen commented “We are very proud of our care homes, but the time had come to sell on. Over the years we had developed a good working relationship with Anita Allen and trusted her to work discretely sourcing a good purchaser for our business. She understood our concerns and worked extremely closely with us to identify a buyer. The sale was professionally managed by Bespoke Care with Jon Marriott of DWF Law LLP in Leeds acting for the vendors together with Alison Whalley of Naylor Wintersgill providing accountancy services. We thank them all for working so well together.”

The business was sold to the rapidly expanding group care operator Silverline Care. Chief Executive, Tim Bolot, commented “We are delighted to have completed another transaction with Anita. The addition of these three homes is a further step in our plan to create regional operating clusters and we are seeking further operational opportunities in Yorkshire and also in close proximity to our Glasgow Support Office.
