In September staff at the Royal Hospital Chelsea took on a 10k run in order to raise funds for the Chelsea Pensioners. The run took place at Regent’s Park and 20 members of staff took part. They were cheered on by the Chelsea Pensioners.
Whilst undertaking a tour of duty in Afghanistan, Staff Sergeant Stephen Hughes carried out a fitness fundraising challenge and raised almost £5,000 for the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Stephen completed 20 days of ‘Reps to Remember’, which saw him carry out 453 40kg squats, a 4.53km 100kg sledge pull and 453 tricep dips.
Earlier this year, we cheered on runners Sharon Cairney and Chris Summers as they successfully completed the Edinburgh and London marathons respectively, raising approximately £500 each for the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
In May, ex-Forces personnel Ben Mead and his team completed the Three Peaks Challenge, which involved climbing the three highest summits in the UK within 24 hours. This gruelling challenge saw Ben’s team raise over £1,000 for the Chelsea Pensioners.
