Welcoming Our Wounded Warrior

On Thursday 2nd November 2016, Guardsman John Dawson, our Wounded Warrior was welcomed to The Lord Leycester Hospital. This is in keeping with our 450-year-old Charter from 1572 that calls for the Hospital to provide a place of refuge and home to soldiers’ as shall hereafter be maimed or hurt in the wars, in the service of the Queens Majesty, her heirs and successors’. John served with the Grenadier Guards in Helmand, Afghanistan 5 years ago where he was injured, and he is now very excited to be here and we are delighted to have him in our community.

​We would like to thank the Grocers Company who gave a very generous donation to renovate the Laight Flat, John’s new home, and The Grenadier Guards, The Royal British Legion, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, Blesma, The 353 Trust, Rugby for Heroes, Warwick Relief in Need Charity, The Warwick Lions Club, Jenny Bragg and Mandy Littlejohn for their generous outpouring of philanthropy and support.
