'Calpe House Needs Your Help’ appeal launches this week
The Calpe House Trust is to launch a new building appeal 'Calpe House Needs Your Help’ this Friday. The Appeal will be launched with a presentation of the plans in front of Parliament on Main Street on the Charity’s Flag Day at midday.
Earlier this year the Calpe House Trust purchased three new buildings to meet the demand for accommodation of the GHA sponsored patients receiving treatment in London, at a cost of £8.5M. The trust is now urging everyone in Gibraltar to get behind this appeal in order to “build a bigger Calpe House for people needing treatment in London” for just £2 a month.
“All the approvals are now in place for planning permission to convert the Grade II listed buildings into apartments with a total of 38 ensuite rooms for patients at a cost of a further £5M,” said a spokesman.
