Broughton House has been chosen by public-private partnership Urban Vision as its charity of the year for 2018.

The money raised by Urban Vision’s 390-strong workforce will go towards a new multi-million pound Veterans Care Village at Broughton House, with building work due to begin in the spring.

Urban Vision is a joint venture between Salford City Council, Capita and Galliford Try. It delivers a range of property, engineering and planning services across Salford to boost development and regeneration.

Julie Verne, development director at Broughton House, said: “We are delighted to be working with Urban Vision as its chosen charity and we look forward to supporting its efforts to raise vital funds for veterans in Salford and Greater Manchester.”

Barry Pilkington, partnership director at Urban Vision, said: “We are delighted to announce that Broughton House is our chosen charity for 2018. To provide rounded care for our young and old veterans alike on a single, dedicated site here in the heart of Salford is so very impressive, and a vision we are extremely proud to be a part of.”

Urban Vision staff will be taking part in the 10km Great Manchester Run in May to raise money for Broughton House. Other sponsored sports activities are planned along with beard shaves, staff bake sales and dress-down Fridays, and a week of activities in the run-up to Armed Forces Day on Saturday, June 30.

Broughton House aims to become the first veteran care village in the UK with their multi-million pound redevelopment. This will include a 64 bedroom care home, retirement apartments, an armed forces support hub and many more excellent facilities all under one roof.
