The Royal Hospital Chelsea is delighted to announce that a second runner will be taking part in the London Marathon in April this year in support of the Chelsea Pensioners.

Rachel Webster, who herself served in the Army for 26 years, has decided to take on the challenge of running this year’s London Marathon in support of the Chelsea Pensioners.

The Royal Hospital Chelsea is delighted to have agreed an ongoing partnership with leading estate agents John D Wood & Co. In a wide ranging agreement we have the opportunity to learn from the experience of John D Wood & Co in raising awareness and funds for our charity as well as to engage with their staff to promote the work of the Hospital and the Chelsea Pensioners to new audiences.  

Chelsea Pensioner and London Marathon veteran Fred shared his advice with charity duo.

A group of six Chelsea Pensioners and staff of the Royal Hospital Chelsea have visited a Personnel Recovery Centre in Tidworth, Wiltshire. 

Sales of seed of Mr Fothergill's Poppy Victoria Cross have now resulted in a massive £39,823 being raised for the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

The Royal Hospital Chelsea, home of the Chelsea Pensioners, has been selected as charity of the year by Sainsbury’s Local’s Gatliff Road store.

Retail sales of seed of Mr Fothergill's Poppy Victoria Cross this Spring (January to June 2014) have raised more than £24,000 for the Royal Hospital Chelsea.
