HRH Princess Alexandra to visit Care for Veterans

On Tuesday 31 October, HRH Princess Alexandra will come to Worthing to visit veterans and staff at local charity, Care for Veterans, of which she is President.

Thanks to a generous grant from the LIBOR Fund, the charity (formerly known as The Queen Alexandra Hospital Home), has been able to build an extension to one of its wings, to enlarge and improve the facilities in two existing rooms and build two additional single en-suite rooms. This not only provides two more beds, enabling the charity to care for more veterans and their family members, but it also gives greater flexibility when admitting both permanent and respite residents.
