Chelsea Pensioner Paul Whittick, who served in the Royal Army Medical Corps, has always been keen on keeping fit. In the light of lockdown, he says staying physically and mentally active is more important than ever.

Last Sunday, six intrepid staff members put on their running shoes to raise money for the Royal Hospital and Chelsea Pensioners at the Vitality Big Half marathon. 

Chelsea Pensioner Alan Rutter, 71, is ready to take on a monumental challenge. From Saturday 3rd August, Alan will walk along the entire length of the Western Front, close to 1,000km, starting from the coast of Belgium near Dunkirk to the French town of Pfetterhouse on the Swiss border.  

Chelsea Pensioner Alan Rutter will set out to walk the 610 miles of the "Western Front" this weekend to raise funds for two charities, including the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
