The charity celebrates its centenary this year, and the Golf Day is one of a number of events being held throughout the year to mark the very special occasion.
The Harry Colt designed course at Ham Manor Golf Club, Angmering is set in beautiful parkland, so golfers can enjoy the stunning views as they play through each hole.
Care for Veterans’ Head of Fundraising and Marketing, Elizabeth Baxter, said,
“We are extremely grateful to Ham Manor Golf Club for hosting this centenary Golf Day. It promises to be a fabulous day with lots of good golf in beautiful surroundings. All those who participate will be helping us raise vital funds, so that we may continue to provide our first-class and award-winning care to our veterans, many of whom are facing the toughest battle of their lives.”
Care for Veterans (formerly The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home) was established in 1919 – the charity celebrates its centenary this year.
Care for Veterans is a registered charity, providing care and rehabilitation for physically disabled ex-Service personnel and their families. Our residents’ needs are complex and many have multiple disabilities. Many have an Acquired Brain Injury and some have neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s or Multiple Sclerosis. Others are paralysed or do not have use of their limbs and some are terminally ill. We support on average 140 residents a year.
We care for up to 60 residents at any one time.
Our residents are aged between 34 and 100.
Services at Care for Veterans include nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, an active social and recreation department, rehabilitation kitchen, a chaplaincy service, counselling, IT facilities, a rehabilitation garden, sensory room, function room, and regular outings on our specially adapted coach.
With no regular government funding, Care for Veterans must raise over £1.9 million each year to maintain its nursing and rehabilitation services for ex-Servicemen and women.
