Past Events - Annual Reception 2018

On 27 September 2018, over 250 guests gathered in the Great Hall of the Royal Hospital Chelsea for our Annual Reception.

This month marks the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. Given our deep rooted military heritage it seemed fitting to hold this year’s Annual Reception at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, and we were delighted to welcome so many Chelsea Pensioners who kept our guests entertained!

The evening was dedicated to the ‘Past, Present & Future’ of the Hospital and our 300 guests were able to discover more about our history through a specially curated exhibition of photos, artefacts and records taken from the Hospital’s archives. Particularly poignant was the case record of a young officer wounded in Amiens on the 27th September 1918 – a hundred years ago to the day of our reception.

Our Chairman, Robin Broadhurst, introduced our guest speaker and Trustee, Lieutenant General (Retd.) Sir William Rollo KCB CBE, who spoke eloquently about King Edward VII’s Hospital during the First World War, and our continued support of veterans today through our Centre for Veterans’ Health.

After the speeches, guests were treated to a heart-warming performance from the North London Military Wives Choir, who sang perennial favourites and songs from their new album, Remember, which commemorates the end of the First World War.

The evening witnessed the official launch of our Autumn Appeal, focusing on raising funds in order to help even more veterans receive grants for the medical care they desperately need.

We aim to raise £260,000 each year enabling us to conduct more complex surgical procedures. We are delighted to announce that through your generous donations we have raised nearly £90,000.  Thank you!

We are currently working on finalising our Events Calendar for 2019. For further information please contact us events@kingedwardvii.co.uk .
