Work For Personal Recovery Centre On Track
Work to build a one-of-a-kind centre which cares for wounded servicemen and women in Colchester is still on course to open in spring next year.
The Personal Recovery Centre recently got a 4-thousand boost from local fundraisers through Help for Heroes.

It will be the first purpose-built facility of its kind and will provide residential accommodation for up to 29 soldiers and 31 day guests.
