Filmed during 2006, the series will show the reality of life as a Chelsea Pensioner, from choosing to live in such a unique retirement home to meeting the Queen.The programmes will air during a key year for the Hospital as its Chelsea Pensioners’ Appeal continues to raise money towards its £35m target in 2008 to fund urgently needed refurbishments at The Royal Hospital. As a non Government organisation, the Hospital relies on private funding to undertake building projects and hopes this series will help to encourage donations.
