Chelsea and Westminster Hospital celebrated the festive season with a special Christmas event on Monday 17 December. Christmas at Chelsea and Westminster was a new event for the Trust for 2012 and was an opportunity to celebrate Christmas with our local community.

The event opened at 5pm when special guests the Chelsea Pensioners turned on the Christmas tree lights. This was followed by two hours of festivities including Santa’s grotto, gingerbread decorating, Teddy Bear Hospital and Christmas tree decoration making. Our hospital charities also had stands at the event and the giggle doctors were on hand raising smiles.

There were carols and Christmas songs performed by the All Saints Putney Junior Singers and music from Dick Laurie’s Elastic Band.
