The annual Care for Veterans’ Christmas Bazaar will take place on Saturday 30 November, from 1.30pm until 4pm.
As always, this year’s event promises lots of festive fun with a Christmas market selling gifts, decorations, cards and real Nordmann fir non-drop Christmas trees. There will also be festive treats, Santa’s grotto, real donkeys and owls, carols, a large model train on display, and many opportunities to win prizes in raffles and tombolas!
The Bazaar is at Care for Veterans on Boundary Road, Worthing and entry is by donation. All money raised will go towards providing the veterans who live there with the nursing and rehabilitation they need in a place they can call home.

About Care for Veterans
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 35 and 101.
Our residents represent the tri-services: Royal Navy, Army and RAF.
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.
