The extremely generous donation will go towards the cost of providing rehabilitation services to disabled Army veterans and their dependents who live at Care for Veterans, over the next 12 months.
Care for Veterans (formerly The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home) has been caring for disabled veterans since it was first established in 1919, and with no regular government funding, the charity must raise over £1.9 million each year to maintain its nursing and rehabilitation services for ex-Service personnel.
The services ABF are helping to fund consist of occupational therapy, physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, neuropsychology, on-site wheelchair clinic, rehabilitation kitchen, social and recreational activities, outings, chaplaincy and a mobile ambulance.
Care for Veterans’ Chief Executive, Andy Neaves, said: “We are extremely grateful to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity for their very generous donation. With approximately a third of our current residents either having served in, or having familial links to the British Army, this donation is a wonderful example of their commitment to supporting soldiers, veterans and their immediate families for life. On behalf of our residents I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their continued support.”< Back to News
