ARMY CHARITY AWARDS £80,000 TO BROUGHTON HOUSE VETERAN CARE VILLAGE

The Army’s national charity has generously awarded Broughton House Veteran Care Village a five-figure funding boost.
ABF The Soldiers’ Charity has granted £80,000 towards our general running costs.

Rhys Edwards, fundraising and marketing manager at Broughton House, said: “We are incredibly grateful for the continued support of 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.”

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity was formed in 1944 to provide a lifetime of support to soldiers, veterans and their families when they are in need.

In the past year, the organisation has helped 70,000 members of the Army family in 62 countries across the globe and has funded 89 other charities and organisations to deliver specialist services.

Major General (Ret’d) Martin Rutledge, Chief Executive of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, said: “The Soldiers’ Charity is 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.”
