Whiteley Village, in Elmbridge, Surrey, which cares for more than 400 elderly people, has secured a second major charitable contribution towards the upgrading of the village. The Drapers¹ Company, a City of London livery company, has agreed in principle to contribute £1.4m to Whiteley Village following the sale of its own almshouses at the Henry Lucas Hospital in Workingham. The donation, subject to further agreement, will fund the building of 16 extra double cottages at Whiteley Village. The Drapers¹ donation to Whiteley Village follows a £4m donation from the Airways Charitable Trust towards the building of the village¹s new extracare unit.
