We are delighted to award Broughton House a £80,000 grant towards the development of its Veteran Care Village.
Once completed, the two-acre site will feature a 64-bedroom care home; up to 30 independent living apartments; a military support hub; a memorial park and landscaped gardens with a bowling green and bandstand.
Last month, residents of Broughton House moved into their new accommodation following the completion of the first stage of the £14m Veteran Care Village, which is the first of its kind in the UK.
Rhys Edwards, Fundraising and Marketing Manager at Broughton House, said: “We are incredibly grateful for the continued support from ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. More than half of our residents proudly served in the Army and they are delighted to know that the relationship will continue as we transition into Broughton House Veteran Care Village.”
Major General (Ret’d) Martin Rutledge, Chief Executive of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, said: “We are delighted to continue supporting Broughton House with its essential work caring for elderly veterans. We strive to help provide the Army family with the comfort and support they deserve and partnerships such as this enable us to give something back to our veterans.”
