Chelsea Cheesmakers Present Pensioners With Annual Christmas Treat

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:
