Broughton House Welcomes £10,000 Grant From The Hospital Saturday Fund

Broughton House has received a £10,000 grant towards the costs of the new Veterans Care Village development.

The money, donated by The Hospital Saturday Fund, will be used to fund the bed linen for the new 64-bed nursing and dementia care home.

Paul Jackson, chief executive of The Hospital Saturday Fund, said: “We are delighted to support Broughton House with funding towards the new development.

“We are greatly aware of the excellent work being done by Broughton House with its provision of care and support and how it is able to positively impact on the lives of our veterans.”

The Hospital Saturday Fund will this year give £1.2m in donations and grants to medical charities, hospices and hospitals across the UK and Ireland. Help will also be given to individuals whose illness or disability has caused financial difficulties.

Its support for charities is funded from the profits of its trading company, HSF health plan, a leading health cash plan in the UK and Ireland.

HSF health plan provides a wide range of health benefits to help people cover the cost of their everyday health care, covering some or all of the costs of things such as dental check-ups and treatment, eye tests, glasses and contact lenses, physiotherapy, osteopathy and hospital admissions.

It also operates a range of helpline and advice lines.

The company has 105,000 policy holders but when family members are taken into consideration the figure is over 300,000.

Chris Lindsay from Broughton House said: “We are most grateful for the support and recent donation from The Hospital Saturday Fund.

“Broughton House has commenced its journey for the new Veterans Care Village and the donation will help towards funding some of the finishing touches that will improve the wellbeing of our residents.”
