The Royal Hospital Chelsea is delighted to announce our ongoing partnership with leading estate agents John D Wood & Co.

Putting the Fun into Fundraising
John D Wood - Corporate PartnersIn addition to providing much needed exposure for the Chelsea Pensioners, the staff at John D Woods have also run a number of fundraising initiatives.

Russell Williamson and Sophie Leigh-Bankes completed a mammoth sponsored bike rides over the Summer months raising in excess of £2,200 between them.  Russell cycled 300 miles from Chelsea to Land’s end while Sophie cycled to Paris in only 24 hours.

Sophie Deedes, together with some of her colleagues, enjoyed a day at the show jumping with Chelsea Pensioners at the Longines Global Champions tour 2018.

The partnership raised a further £2,000 through an exclusive Royal Hospital hosted quiz night in the Chelsea Pensioners Club on Thursday 4thOctober. The Pensioners proved that the wisdom of advanced years can overcome youth and enthusiasm and narrowly triumphed on the night.
