Last month, @jamesblunt made a surprise visit ahead of his Live At Chelsea performance to the staff of the Margaret Thatcher Infirmary (MTI) to recognise their exceptional care of the Chelsea Pensioners. Susan Williams, Matron of the MTI, explained what it meant to her team: “It was such a lovely surprise for James Blunt to meet with our wonderful nursing and care staff in the MTI. They were clearly overwhelmed and happy that he valued their contribution to the care of the Chelsea Pensioners." Link to full story in bio
