Vitality Big Half Marathon runners

In March 2020, staff at the Royal Hospital Chelsea took on a half marathon run in order to raise funds for the new Activities centre for the Royal Hospital Chelsea.  Six runners were cheered on by friends, family and Chelsea Pensioners and together managed to raise £6,000.
