Since our partnership with Mr Fothergill's Seeds, over £70,000 has been raised for the Royal Hospital through sales of the Poppy Victoria Cross. This is a phenomenal contribution to our charity and will help make a real difference to the lives of our current and future generations of Chelsea Pensioners. The special poppy can be purchased here: http://bit.ly/2GO5hEO and the new Sweet Pea Scarlet Tunic, which was launched this year, can be purchased here: http://bit.ly/2CKNSKO #CharityTuesday

When asked why the Royal Hospital Chelsea is such a special place to live, a frequent answer from the Chelsea Pensioners is the community spirit, the opportunity it gives them to share time and comradeship with their fellow veterans. 🎖️👍 at The Chelsea Pensioners

Chelsea Pensioner and World War Two "codebreaker" Helen Andrews has paid a poignant visit back to @bletchleyparkuk for the first time since 1945. “The visit brought back many memories for me especially going into Hut 6 where I worked all those years ago. It was so lovely to be able to see it again and our visit was a very happy day for me.” Helen worked at Bletchley Park between 1943 and 1945, a crucial time in the facility's code-breaking efforts. Historians have estimated that the Second World War was cut short by two to four years due to the efforts of those working at the site.
