Support the Chelsea Pensioners - help open our Activities Centre on time

In these challenging times, the need for an on-site Activities Centre, accessible to all Pensioners, has never been more pressing. Every detail of this exceptional new facility has been designed with the needs of the veterans of the Royal Hospital and beyond in mind, while harmonising with our existing heritage. With your support, we can give current and future generations of Chelsea Pensioners the rich and rewarding retirement they deserve.

Give today and we'll double the value of our donation

Our Board of Commissioners has pledged to match every donation we receive - so if you donate £100, your donation will be worth £200 - £250 with Gift Aid. Please give today and join us in our drive to open this wonderful addition to our historic home next summer.
