Chelsea Cheesmakers Present Pensioners With Annual Christmas Treat

by | 3rd, December 2009

ANORAK was at the Royal Hospital Chelsea to see the Chelsea pensioners receive the Christmas cheese. Every year British cheesemakers donate their product to the pensioners in a tradition which began in 1692 when the hospital asked a local cheesemonger to provide the pensioners with a Christmas treat. The Seizing of The Cheese is drama in pictures. Blessed are the Cheesemakers. Enjoy the pictures:
