Guests who attended the prestigious the Adur & Worthing Business Awards on Friday 1st November were invited to enter a fundraising draw during the evening to support a dedicated, local charity, Care for Veterans. The charity, based in Boundary Road, Worthing provides long-term nursing care, rehabilitation, respite and award-winning end of life care to those who have served in the Armed Forces. Their rehabilitation includes physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy and neuropsychology, all delivered from their 60-bed facility in Worthing.
The draw raised an incredible £3,390 which will go towards vital equipment and resources. Elizabeth Baxter, Head of Fundraising and Marketing commented; “Care for Veterans are delighted to be the chosen charity to benefit from the fundraising at the Adur & Worthing Business Awards. The money raised at the event is a fantastic boost to our fundraising efforts and will pay for the vital care and rehabilitation of our disabled veterans, many of whom are facing the toughest battle of their lives. Care for Veterans receives no regular Government funding so money raised at events like this is so precious to us and will be very well spent on the veterans in our care. We are most grateful to all involved with the Adur & Worthing Business Awards for making this possible and the charity is honoured to benefit from, and be associated with, such a great local event.”
James Stoner (Managing Director at JSPC/Vice Chairman AWBA) and Peter Webb MBE DL (Managing Director at ETI Ltd/Chairman AWBA) recently visited the charity to present a cheque. Peter Webb said “It was great to support a charity that provides such outstanding care to ex-servicemen and women and their families. I would like to personally thank everyone who donated so generously on the night”.
