Please help us raise money for the Calpe House Appeal – we’re putting our lives on the line for this!
On Saturday 20th August, we will be throwing ourselves out of a plane at 15,000 feet, all with the hope of raising awareness and money for The Calpe House Appeal.
The Calpe House Charitable Trust has helped over 5000 Gibraltar Health Authority sponsored patients’ visits to London. For a Gibraltar patient to be referred to a London hospital can be very daunting. Patients find themselves away from home with fairly serious, in many cases life threatening, illnesses. Calpe House provides a warm, friendly and permanent facility where patients can stay during their treatment in the company of fellow Gibraltarians who are in similar difficult circumstances; a home from home.
The current property has proven too small to accommodate the demand and therefore The Trust have purchased three Grade II listed buildings in Norfolk Square, London, which need to be extensively refurbished at a cost of £6 million.
Please show us your support by donating generously. Donations can be made via bank transfer to:
Account: The Friends of Calpe House
Bank: The Gibraltar International Bank

Or cheques (made payable to The Friends of Calpe House) sent to Edwina or Faye at:
Gibraltar House, 150 Strand, London, WC2R 1JA.
Thank you very much in advance for your support. Think of us on the 20th – we’ll post a before and after photo to prove we’ve done it!
