Updating Categories within a Collection


I have a Collection of real estate products with a couple of hundred items that can each be assigned a Category to indicate location, and I'm displaying these with a list/detail view and a user filtered list.

My client has decided to rename one of the category items from 'Villa' to 'House/Villa' and my issue is that each Collection item must be saved before the Category change is applied in my list view. This behaviour seems similar to the issue raised in this forum thread

Is there any way to force or trigger a save of all items within a Collection?

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions.

As long as they rename it by editing its title then it should be fine.
