The Lord Leycester Hospital

The Lord Leycester HospitalThe Lord Leycester Hospital (LLH) is a historical building, with accommodation, run on similar grounds to the Chelsea Hospital for retired service men.

The ‘new’ Master of the LLH Heidi, is ex-military herself and has been in post for a little over a year. She has worked tirelessly with professionals to assess the buildings that comprise of the LLH and has discovered that as with all old buildings, there is a mountain of restoration and renovation that is needed to maintain and improve the buildings. 

With this assessment (nearly a million pounds needed) in place she has established a ‘Friends of the LLH’ (currently at 200 people) to help actively promote the LLH and to identify fund-raising activities. This is being run by a committee who work closely with her and who are keen to support and promote any fund-raising activities presented to them.

Sandra, the gardener, has recently raised £10,000 to refurbish the Victorian greenhouse, through charity stalls held in the gardens.

It can be seen therefore that there is the support and drive within the LLH to continue fundraising and as this is such an important landmark in Warwick, as a local organisation, they would be helped enormously by our support.
