Broughton House, the Salford home for ex-servicemen and women, has received a £96,000 funding boost from ABF The Soldiers’ Charity which will go towards the costs of running the facility…

Broughton House is currently home to 31 veterans but being transformed into a Veteran Care Village in a £14m redevelopment. Once completed, the two-acre site will feature a 64-bedroom care home, up to 30 independent living apartments, a military support hub, a memorial park and landscaped gardens with a bowling green and bandstand.

Rhys Edwards, fundraising and marketing manager at Broughton House, said: “Approximately 50 per cent of our residents have served in the Army and we are delighted that The Soldiers’ Charity is once again supporting us. Its continued support is very much appreciated and we look forward to working in partnership with the organisation as we transition to becoming the UK’s first veteran care village.”

Brigadier (Ret’d) Robin Bacon, Chief of Staff at ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Broughton House again this year. The team is dedicated to supporting Army veterans of all conflicts to live with independence and dignity, and for that we are very grateful.”
