At present, the fees payable by ex-service guests can be kept lower than cost thanks to the donations and sponsorship received from several major service charities. We are delighted to acknowledge the support to our revenue account of:

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity (was known as Army Benevolent Fund)
Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund
Seafarers UK (was known as King George’s Fund for Sailors)
Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity

As yet we receive no support for our ex-emergency service guests and until we do their fees are charged at cost. Perhaps in the future….?

Kitchener’s is always looking for more volunteers and if you can offer your time to support us we would be very pleased to hear from you. The management committee meets one evening per month and there is quite a mix of members offering many different skills.

Past financial supporters and benefactors:
Lady Emma Kitchener
Alfred J. Turner

The Aviva Community Fund project
