Earlier this month, 16 teams took part in Care for Veterans’ popular Quiz Night and helped to raise £1,685 for the charity, which this year celebrates 100 years of caring for the nation’s veterans.
Members of the Care for Veterans’ Fundraising Team acted as quizmasters and led the teams through eight interactive rounds of questions.
Care for Veterans’ residents and their families also joined in the fun and lively quiz.
The winning team was ‘Anchored A’Weigh’, who also won the title in the spring. They took home the trophy and won a game of ten pin bowling, kindly donated by Worthing AMF Bowling.
Event organiser, Bianka Vekony, said,
“From everyone here at Care for Veterans, I’d like to thank everyone who came and took part and helped us to raise this fantastic amount of money for the care and rehabilitation of our veterans.”
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 34 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.
